Rep. Rogers Statement on House Passage of FY25 NDAA

WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers (AL-03), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released a statement following House passage of H.R. 8070, the Service member Quality of Life Improvement and National Defense Authorization Act.

“There is no investment more important than the one we make in the men and women who serve in our All-Volunteer Force. We cannot kick the can down the road when it comes to providing for our service members. Today, the House voted to increase pay for junior enlisted service members by 19.5%, improve unaccompanied housing, expand service member access to childcare and healthcare, and support military spouses. Our service members are the bedrock of our national security, strengthening our military starts by ensuring our service members are taken care of. 

“The threats facing our nation are more complex and challenging than anything we’ve encountered before. To ensure that we stay ahead of our adversaries, the FY25 NDAA keeps the continued modernization of our nuclear deterrent on track, invests in our undersea capabilities, boosts innovation, and supports the capabilities our warfighters need to succeed on any future battlefield. Additionally, the FY25 NDAA will improve the quality of life for service members and military families across Alabama and support the vital work being done at the Anniston Army Depot.

“Our adversaries will only be deterred through strength and the FY25 NDAA ensures our military will continue to project that strength.”
