Wenstrup Votes to Enact Defense Authorization Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, Congressman Brad Wenstrup (OH-02) issued the following statement after voting to advance into law the FY 2021 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

“Our nation’s servicemembers make countless sacrifices to protect the American people. We must provide our warfighters with the tools and resources necessary to carry out their missions and keep them safe. This legislation also addresses growing global challenges, from countering China’s increasing aggression to strengthening our nation’s cybersecurity capabilities.

At the same time, I share President Trump’s interest in reviewing the Communications Decency Act of 1996, and specifically Section 230. The Internet economy has grown beyond anything imagined in the 1990s, and it is the responsibility of legislators to ensure that our laws are keeping up with society and the tech companies that have come to dominate our economy and public discourse.”

Congressman Wenstrup was named a conferee to the FY 2021 NDAA Conference Committee and had two amendments included in the final text.

He also serves as a colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve. He served a tour in Iraq from 2005-2006 as a combat surgeon and was awarded a Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for his service.
