“It is a honor and privilege to be selected as a conferee for the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, and I sincerely thank Speaker Ryan for naming me as a member to work on the provisions that fall under the jurisdiction of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. It’s imperative we ensure our troops are adequately paid and military operations are sufficiently funded as we rebuild it. It is a priority of mine to ensure that our men and women in uniform have the best equipment and training in the world, and I’m grateful to serve on this committee and see that this year’s NDAA meets its obligation to our armed forces.”
