Washington, D.C. – Rep. Don Bacon (NE-02) issued the following statement regarding the passage of H.R. 4350, the FY2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) in the House:
“Once again, the House of Representatives has fulfilled its Constitutional responsibility by passing a defense authorization for the 61st consecutive year. Working closely with my colleagues on the House Armed Services Committee, we have crafted a comprehensive defense bill that advances national security and supports our service members and military families. I am especially pleased that this legislation includes a bi-partisan agreement to reverse the Administration’s proposed funding reductions and keeps our defense budget level with inflation.
