From US Rep. Greg Murphy:
|Washington, D.C. — Today, Rep. Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) voted YES on H.R. 2670, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2024, which now heads to the President to be signed into law.
This legislation authorizes $886.3 billion for national defense discretionary programs, an increase of $23 billion over FY23 funding levels. It robustly funds and modernizes our armed forces to prepare us against threats abroad, improves the quality of life for servicemembers, and combats the Biden Administration’s woke agenda that has devastated our recruitment numbers.
“I’m proud to have voted in favor of the FY24 NDAA, a very strong bill that was crafted under regular order for the first time in two years under the consideration of all Members,” said Congressman Greg Murphy, M.D. “While there were some provisions included that I am adamantly against, such as funding for abortions and transgender treatment, perfect cannot be the enemy of good.”
“Global instability under President Biden has made the world a much more dangerous place and we must fund our warfighters to the fullest. This legislation does just want that and provides an across-the-board 5.2% pay raise for all troops, makes much-needed reforms to assist military spouses, and saves taxpayers $40 billion by cutting inefficient programs, obsolete weapon systems, and Pentagon bureaucracy.”
