WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representative Adam Smith (D-Wash.), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, today issued the following statement before the House of Representatives began its consideration of H.R. 7900, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23). 

"For 61 consecutive years, the Congress has passed a bipartisan NDAA that invests in the people, programs, and technologies that strengthen our common defense. This year’s House bill builds on this tradition by supporting initiatives that will expand the talent pipeline, accelerate the development of cutting-edge technologies, and support the highest pay raise for service members in decades. I look forward to the House’s consideration of the NDAA, which serves as a crucial vehicle for the American people’s elected representatives in Congress to shape our country’s national security policy and priorities."
