House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) released the following statement after the House passed three resolutions led by Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), and Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA) that affirm the House of Representatives commitment to enhancing national security and providing our service members with the resources they need to keep America secure.
“We have too many planes that can’t fly, too many ships that can’t sail, and too many Soldiers who cannot deploy, while too many threats are mounting. After years of neglect by the Obama administration, the People’s House has taken action on a historic effort to begin rebuilding the military and reversing the damage. More work remains, and it is critical that the funding for our military readiness, capabilities, and personnel be provided in a timely and consistent manner. Today’s resolutions reaffirm House Republicans’ commitment to keeping America safe and free, and to provide our service members with the resources and training they need. I would like to thank the members of the House Armed Services Committee, including Representatives Cheney, Gallagher, and Wittman, for their leadership on this important national security priority.”
