Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-Willsoboro, was selected by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) to serve on the formal House-Senate conference committee to resolve differences over the National Defense Authorization Act.
This bill authorizes appropriations and sets forth policies for Department of Defense programs and activities, including military personnel strengths.
“I am grateful to Speaker Ryan for selecting me to serve for the third year in a row on the bicameral NDAA conference committee,” said Rep. Stefanik. “Our federal government has no greater role than providing for our national defense, and it’s important that our district and Fort Drum have a seat at the table during NDAA negotiations. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to secure a strong NDAA that gives our brave men and women in uniform the resources they need to keep us safe.”
Stefanik is a member of the House Armed Services Committee and chair of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities.
