Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-TX), of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement ahead of consideration of the first Minibus Conference Report on the House Floor tomorrow:
“This appropriations package provides crucial support to our national security and to our veterans.  Not only does it get elements of our military and the defense nuclear enterprise the resources they need, but it gives it to them on time so they can make good use of it.”
“Our military infrastructure is at a crisis point. Veterans struggle to access services, and leaders from both parties have recognized the need for new investment in our nuclear enterprise.  This bill tackles each of these problems. It should be supported, and then we must ensure that we fully fund all elements of our nation’s security.”
