Strengthening our Nation’s Defense and Military

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 28, 2018 | Andre Castro (202-225-6105) | comments

U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) issued the following statement regarding the House passage of H.R. 6157, the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019:

"It is imperative that our military is equipped with the resources necessary to keep America safe and to meet the critical security threats that exist in our world today. The Department of Defense Appropriations Act, which passed the House with bipartisan support, provides the funding needed to continue rebuilding our armed forces, reinforce military readiness and support our military men and women. Cuts to defense during the previous administration weakened our military strength and emboldened our enemies. Now, with President Trump’s leadership, Congress has been able to restore the needed support to strengthen our military's position to defend our nation. This bill also provides a well-deserved pay raise for our troops, the largest in nine years, while investing in military health care to ensure the well-being of our warfighters and veterans. I remain committed to ensuring that our military can effectively combat emerging threats and provide for the safety and security of hardworking American families."

It was a busy week in the House. We passed the Intelligence Authorization Act and the Unfunded Mandates Information and Transparency Act, and the Energy and Commerce Committee passed my bipartisan bill – the Advanced Nuclear Fuel Availability Act.
