House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after President Donald Trump signed the FY2019 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law.

“Our military has been asked to do too much, with too little, for far too long. It’s created a readiness crisis that has endangered the lives of our troops and jeopardized our nation’s safety. To bolster America’s security and reverse these dangerous trends, Republicans have led to prioritize military funding. The NDAA President Trump signed into law today will direct critical resources to address the readiness crisis, give our troops their biggest pay raise in 9 years, and ensure they have the equipment they need to do their jobs. After years of cuts and decay, we are keeping our promise to rebuild our military and put the security of our country first. As a result, America is Better Off Now.”

Note: House Republicans have led to strengthen and reassert the dominance of the American military. With new investments in training, equipment, and personnel, our country is Better Off Now. Learn more on
