Congressman Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement after the Trump administration announced plans to offer a $603 billion budget for defense, well below the needed $640 billion:

“The new administration claiming a 10% increase that’s really a 3% increase is fake budgeting.

 “Our military’s readiness has suffered immensely over the past 8 years due to stringent budget cuts. It is imperative we can make a real attempt to reverse dangerous trends in defense spending. I hope the administration will be able to come to the negotiating table in a meaningful way to support our armed forces and to protect our interests at home and abroad.”

TURNER Holds F-35 Hearing

2017/02/16

Congressman Turner (R-OH), Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, made the following remarks, as prepared at the hearing titled "Military Services 5th Generation Tactical Aircraft Challenges and F-35 Joint Strike Fighter Program Update."

“This is a timely hearing and is complementary to last week’s full committee hearing on the “State of the Military.”  Last week the committee heard testimony from each of the military services’ Vice Chiefs of Staff that the force is strained, and that the Services have to do more with less.

“These challenges, combined with years of budget driven national security strategies and cuts, rather than threat-based strategies, have led to a military readiness crisis. With a new Administration indicating its intent to “rebuild the U.S. Armed Forces,” I look forward to working with them to reverse this harmful trend in military readiness.

“Modernization and building capacity are critical components to restoring readiness. This brings us to today’s hearing focus on 5th generation tactical fighter requirements and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program.

“This is the third oversight hearing the subcommittee has held over the past year on the requirements and importance of fifth generation fighters given current and emerging threats.

“One of those hearings was at the National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base on June 18th, 2016, and the witness, then Major General Jerry Harris, here with us today, and then the Vice Commander of Air Combat Command, showed us a striking picture of one half of an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and one half of a Chinese J-31 fighter joined together.  

“It looked like one aircraft, and left no doubt in anyone’s mind that our adversaries are extremely close to fielding fifth generation fighter programs of their own.  With only 187 F-22s and 219 F-35s produced, we have very limited 5th generation capacity.

“The F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program is nearing the end of its development program and is over 90 percent complete.  It’s no secret the F-35 development program has faced some significant challenges in cost and schedule overruns early in development. After being re-baselined in 2010, the program has been successful in meeting cost and schedule goals.

“Although F-35 development is scheduled to be completed by October of this year, General Bogdan has noted in previous updates that there remains about three to four months of schedule risk to completion of the F-35 development program and additional costs could be incurred.

“In terms of oversight, the subcommittee remains concerned about the costs associated with closing out the F-35 development program, the maturity of the program to potentially execute a Block Buy for fiscal years 2018 through 2020, and determining whether more efficient program management can help accelerate the initial operational test and evaluation program. We expect to gain a better understanding of these important oversight issues today.

“During our hearing last July on 5th generation fighters, General Herbert “Hawk” Carlisle stressed that fourth-generation aircraft play a significant role in the near term in addressing fighter capacity and inventory concerns since we have few operational 5th generation fighters.

“He also noted the importance of 5th generation fighters, [quote] “The role of our 4th Gen fighters will diminish over time due to two main reasons: The first is they will age out and be replaced by more capable F-35s. But more pressingly, our 4th generation fighters are more increasingly unable to operate in highly contested environments where advanced air defense systems render them ineffective.”

“Given current fiscal constraints, the military services are being forced to prioritize between building capacity in 4th generation tactical aircraft inventory to help mitigate some of the immediate readiness burdens on the current force or trying to accelerate needed 5th generation tactical aircraft capability.

“For National Security purposes, it’s not a question of one or the other…the answer really is that we need to do both.

“In closing, there have been several reports and comments in regards to the President’s concerns for the need to lower the costs of the F-35 program. Affordability of this program has always been an oversight concern of this committee. I am looking forward to working with the new Administration and the Department of Defense to continue to explore ways to reduce costs in this program and other defense programs.”

TURNER to NAHF: No Congressional Oversight, No Congressional Charter

2017/02/15

Congressman Turner released the following statement after the Dayton Daily News reported the NAHF has considered leaving Dayton, Ohio.

Yesterday, NAHF President Michael J. Quiello said in an interview that the NAHF could, “vote to pick up the Hall of Fame and move it to some other city that’s welcoming to us,” according to the Dayton Daily News.

As a result, Congressman Turner sent a letter to Bill Harris, Chairman of the NAHF Board of Trustees, that he is drafting legislation to terminate the Congressional Charter of the NAHF.

Below is an excerpt of the letter Congressman Turner has sent:

“As a result, I have lost confidence in the current leadership of the NAHF.  I have, therefore, directed my staff to draft legislation that would terminate the Congressional Charter of the NAHF.  I intend to vigorously pursue this legislation until such time as the Board and leadership of the NAHF regain my confidence that they are committed and capable of executing the responsibilities of a Congressional Charter and ensuring the sustainability of the NAHF at the NMUSAF.”

On January 25th, Congressman Turner sent a letter to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame stating he will investigate the Congressionally Chartered organization after receiving troubling information concerning their finances.

On January 30th, Congressman Turner then announced that he had received support from two National Aviation Hall of Fame Trustees Katie McCallum and Donald I. VanDerKarr after announcing his plans to investigate the NAHF.

On February 1st, Congressman Turner sent a letter to Chairman of the Board of Trustees Bill Harris alerting him that the NAHF must cease and desist all deliberations, efforts or activities that relate to selling or disposing of artifacts in the NAHF’s possession.

On February 6th, Congressman Turner announced Phil Parker President and CEO of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce, Jeff Hoagland, President and CEO of the Dayton Development Coalition and Brady Kress, President and CEO of Dayton History will be tasked with forming a Blue Ribbon Panel to create a sustainable plan for the NAHF’s future.

On February 6th, both Senator Rob Portman and the Chairman of the Natural Resources Committee Rob Bishop (UT-01) have expressed their support of the investigation and the Blue Ribbon Panel.

Congressman Turner is exercising his oversight authority to investigate these allegations concerning the Congressionally Chartered organization.

TURNER: Why Was NAHF Gala Kicked Out of Air Force Museum?

2017/02/14

Congressman Turner sent a letter to Bill Harris, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the NAHF, addressing an additional letter brought to Congressman Turner’s attention detailing the NAHF’s breach of contract.

Congressman Turner’s letter states:

“Complaints amounting to a breach of contract are deeply troubling, especially when coming from the entity that both hosted a marquee NAHF event – the 2016 Enshrinement Dinner – and acts as the NAHF’s landlord.  The NAHF enjoys a privileged location as a tenant within the NMUSAF, which is found on the grounds of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB).  As you are aware, the Dayton community and state of Ohio have invested millions of dollars in NAHF’s museum site at WPAFB.”

Yesterday, Congressman Turner announced three past board members of the NAHF Board of Trustees – Wolfgang Dalichau, Zoe Dell Nutter and Bill Gunlock – who will serve as advisors to the Blue Ribbon Panel.  Fran Duntz will now join as an additional advisor.

On January 25th, Congressman Turner sent a letter to the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Aviation Hall of Fame stating he will investigate the Congressionally Chartered organization after receiving troubling information concerning their finances.

TURNER Reintroduces Legislation to TREAT Opioid Addiction

2017/02/07

Congressman Mike Turner reintroduced The TREAT Act, The Reforming and Expanding Access to Treatment Act. The reintroduction of the bipartisan legislation followed Congressman Turner’s meeting with Fayette County Sheriff Vernon Stanforth. This legislation will increase flexibility in how existing federal funding can be used to combat the opioid epidemic.

“Our country is facing an exponentially growing epidemic of opioid abuse that is resulting in drastic increases in addiction rates, overdose deaths, and incarceration. I have been working closely with the greater Dayton community for the past 4 years to fight this epidemic,” said Congressman Turner. “This bill would take commonsense steps to expand access to the resources used in treating individuals suffering from substance abuse disorders.”

In the 114th Congress, the TREAT Act gained support from the following organizations:

  • Ohio HIDTA
  • Buckeye Sheriffs Association
  • Greene County Prosecutor
  • Greene County Board of Commissioners
  • Greater Miami Valley Emergency Medical Services Council
  • County Commissioners Association of Ohio
  • NACo
  • CorJus, Inc. (representing ten of Ohio’s publicly operated Community Correctional Facilities)
  • Miami Township Board of Trustees
  • City of Dayton

Areas of Impact

  • The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) prohibits the use of grants from its Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) for substance abuse treatment services provided to individuals who are incarcerated. Under this bill, these resources will be made available to individuals in both community-based and institutional settings.
  • Under Medicaid’s Institution for Mental Disease (IMD) exclusion facilities with more than sixteen beds are not eligible for reimbursement. As such, the IMD exclusion prevents reimbursement for substance abuse treatment provided to incarcerated individuals who are otherwise enrolled in or eligible for Medicaid. Under this bill, substance abuse treatment provided at correctional institutions would become eligible for reimbursement.

Congressman Turner has been fighting the opioid epidemic in Dayton since 2013:

  • December 18, 2013: Toured Soin Medical Center, where issue of Heroin-Exposed Newborns was raised.
  • March 10, 2014: Met with area hospitals to discuss the growing issue of Heroin-Exposed Newborns.
  • May 15, 2014: Visited Dayton Children’s Hospital NICU to discuss infant heroin exposure and the withdrawal and recovery process.
  • June 30, 2014: Held a Community Forum on the Effects of the Heroin Epidemic on Newborns.
  • August 27, 2014: Visited the Women’s Recovery Center.
  • May 2015: Held Community Summit on Heroin-Exposed Infants.
  • August 21, 2015: Toured Greene County Jail and Green Leaf Alcohol and Drug Treatment Program; met with criminal justice system administrators and substance abuse and mental health leadership.
  • November 18, 2015: Met with ONDCP Director Michael Botticelli and introduced the TREAT Act with Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) and Congresswoman Niki Tsongas (MA-3).
  • May 12, 2016: The House passed an amendment he cosponsored to increase access to treatment for pregnant women struggling with substance abuse.
  • May 25, 2016: Introduced CRIB Act to help expand access to specialized treatment and recovery options for infants suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), a withdrawal condition in newborns often caused by use of opioids and other addictive substances in pregnant women.
  • August 29, 2016: Hosted a Heroin Epidemic Response Roundtable with Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (WI-05).
  • October 28, 2016: Hosted a roundtable discussion on the opioid and heroin epidemic in Dayton with Senator Rob Portman (OH).
  • February 2, 2017: Joined the bipartisan Addiction, Treatment

A lifelong resident of Dayton, Ohio, Congressman Mike Turner has family roots in Eastern Kentucky. His parents, Ray and Vivian, moved to Dayton in the 1950’s to take advantage of the job opportunities in the manufacturing industry. Mr. Ray Turner worked at General Motors, retiring after 42 years as a member of IUE local 801; and Mrs. Vivian Turner retired from teaching in the Huber Heights School District. Congressman Turner has two daughters, Jessica and Carolyn.

Congressman Turner attended Dayton Public Schools and graduated from Belmont High School. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Ohio Northern University in Ada, Ohio; an MBA from the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio; and a Juris Doctorate from Case Western University School of Law in Cleveland, Ohio. Prior to his election to Congress, Turner was in private practice and corporate law for 13 years.

Congressman Turner has a background of community activism having worked with not-for-profit groups focusing on neighborhood concerns, community development, housing code enforcement, and historical preservation. As the two-term Mayor of the City of Dayton, he was a strong proponent of neighborhood revitalization, crime reduction, increased funding for safety forces, economic development and job creation. He created Rehabarama, a private-public partnership to rehabilitate neglected housing in Dayton’s historic neighborhoods, which had significant economic impact on the region, and received national awards from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the U.S. Conference of Mayors.

Also while serving as Mayor of Dayton, Congressman Turner established a development fund providing more than $19 million in grants for housing and job-producing projects. The development fund sparked investment which resulted in a renaissance of Dayton’s downtown, including a $130 million arts center, a minor league baseball stadium, river front development, loft and upscale housing, additional corporate headquarters, and redevelopment of the former Delco and Frigidaire brownfield area into an office, research, and industrial park. Under Mayor Turner’s leadership, the City of Dayton had a balanced budget for all eight years of his tenure (having not been balanced for the previous five years), added 54 police officers to the force, resulting in a nearly 40 percent reduction in police response time, and closed two adult movie theaters in residential neighborhoods, thus improving the quality of life for Dayton residents.

First elected to the 108th Congress and sworn in January of 2003, Congressman Turner was appointed to the Armed Services Committee, from which he assists Wright-Patterson Air Force Base located in Ohio’s Tenth District, and to the Government Reform Committee, which allows him to contribute his experience as a former mayor to government reform. Congressman Turner’s urban experience was called upon by then House Speaker Dennis Hastert who appointed him Chairman of the new Saving America’s Cities working group. The 24 Member working group was charged with developing goals and principles to help urban America by focusing on economic development issues and encouraging private sector investment in cities.

Continuing his work on urban issues, in the 109th Congress, Turner served as Chairman of the Government Reform Committee’s Subcommittee on Federalism and the Census. During his tenure he worked to help save the Community Development Block Grant program from being reduced in funding and combined with several other programs under the control of the U.S. Department of Commerce. In recognition of his efforts, Congressman Turner was the recipient of the American Planning Association’s 2005 Legislator of the Year Award and the U.S. Conference of Mayor’s 2005 National Legislative Leadership Award.

In the 111th Congress, as a member of the House Armed Services Committee, Turner was named the Ranking Member on the Strategic Forces Subcommittee. The Strategic Forces Subcommittee has jurisdiction over the nation’s nuclear arsenal, our military assets in outer space, the Department of Defense’s intelligence programs, and also over missile defense systems. Reelected to a fifth term in November of 2010, Congressman Turner served as Chairman of the House Armed Services Strategic Forces Subcommittee, and as a Member of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee for the 112th Congress.In January of 2011, Turner was appointed Chairman of the US Delegation to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Parliamentary Assembly – the inter-parliamentary organization of legislators from the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. The Assembly provides a critical forum for international parliamentary dialogue on an array of security, political and economic matters.

In November of 2012, Congressman Turner was elected to represent the newly created 10th Congressional District, which includes all of Montgomery County, Greene County, and portions of Fayette County.  For the 113th Congress, Turner has been appointed Chairman of the House Armed Services Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee, which conducts oversight of ammunition programs, Army and Air Force acquisition programs, all Navy and Marine Corps aviation programs, National Guard and Army and Air Force National Guard and Reserve. The subcommittee also authorizes procurement and R&D programs to ensure that America’s soldiers and airmen are fully equipped to carry out their mission. This is critical not only to our national security, but to Ohio’s economy as well.  Congressman Turner will continue to serve as a member of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee.
In addition to his work on the House Armed Services Committee, Congressman Turner is a senior member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
