Rogers Amendment to Increase Defense Topline Passes

 

The House Armed Services Committee just adopted U.S. Representative Mike
Rogers’ (R-AL), Lead Republican of the House Armed Services Committee,
amendment to increase the _National Defense Authorization Act_ (NDAA)
topline by nearly $25 billion, ensuring growth of 3 percent above
inflation. Increasing the topline has been a priority for the House Armed
Services Committee Republicans to ensure that the United States is
adequately prepared for future conflict. 
“The bipartisan adoption of my amendment sends a clear signal: the
President’s budget submission was wholly inadequate to keep pace with a
rising China and a re-emerging Russia. I hope this bipartisan, and now
bicameral, move is understood by the Biden-Harris administration. The
defense of our nation will not be shortchanged by Congress. I thank my
colleagues for adopting this amendment to support the men and women who
serve in our armed forces.”
