Yakym Votes For Strong National Defense Bill

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Rudy Yakym (IN-02) issued the following statement after voting for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

“Providing for the common defense is one of our most important constitutional duties, and one that the annual NDAA addresses. With Israel under attack and growing threats from Communist China, passing a strong defense bill has never been more important.

“This NDAA will help keep America and our allies safe, including by giving our troops the largest pay raise in two decades, providing unprecedented support for Israel’s security, and equipping our military with the resources needed to counter the CCP’s aggression.

“Looking ahead, I support making long-overdue reforms to the FISA program that my colleague Jim Jordan and others have been working on. We must better protect Americans’ civil liberties while also giving law enforcement the tools they need to hunt down threats and defend the homeland.”
