WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House Armed Services Committee passed the 58th National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2019 with four amendments from Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-02). 

Upon the House Armed Services Committee passage of the legislation, Congressman Wenstrup released the following statement:

“I have long said we cannot continue to expect our military to do more with less.  Today, we have too many planes that cannot fly, too many ships that cannot sail, and too many servicemembers who find themselves without the training or resources they need to complete their mission safely and effectively.  This year’s NDAA continues the process of rebuilding our military and restoring our strength,” said Congressman Brad Wenstrup. 

“I am proud that several of my amendments were included in this year’s NDAA, including an amendment to require the production of an intelligence report on Russian and Chinese interference in the United States.  With this information, we can determine how to best protect our democratic process. 

“My other amendments focus on increasing military medical readiness by providing our servicemembers with gear that fits their needs while looking for ways to reduce injuries.”
