Whip Emmer, House Republicans will Empower Servicemembers with FY24 NDAA

WASHINGTON – Today, Majority Whip Tom Emmer hosted a roundtable discussion on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2024. The NDAA is an annual piece of legislation led by the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) which authorizes funding and sets policy for the United States military. 

Whip Emmer was joined by Congressman Rob Wittman (R-Va.), who serves as Vice Chairman of HASC and Chairman of the Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee, Congressman Cory Mills (R-Fla.), representatives from Airbus, American Defense International, BAE Systems, Inc., GE Aerospace, General Dynamics, HII, Honeywell Aerospace, L3Harris Technologies, Lockheed Martin Corporation, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Technologies, Rolls-Royce North America, The Boeing Company, and other defense experts.

“The NDAA has passed on a bipartisan basis for over 60 years, and I am confident this year’s NDAA will be no exception,” said Whip Emmer. “Democrats will have you believe we are going to cut defense spending, but that is simply not true. Republicans believe in a strong national defense, and we will continue to empower our servicemembers so they are ready to compete at the highest level.”

“I was honored to join House Majority Whip Emmer and national security stakeholders to discuss the importance of this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), said Rep. Wittman. “The NDAA has historically been prioritized as a bipartisan ‘must-pass’ bill, and it has been signed into law every year for the past six decades. The passage of this year’s NDAA holds even more weight as we face growing threats from adversaries and emerging challenges to stability across the globe. As Vice Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, I am committed to crafting and passing an NDAA that equips our warfighters, modernizes our Joint Force, and deters our adversaries. I look forward to continuing to work with Whip Emmer, Chairman Rogers, and our Republican Conference to ensure our Armed Forces are fully funded and able to retain their ability to be the first to any fight.”
