Congressman Dunn Votes “Yes” on National Defense Authorization Act

Congressman Neal Dunn, M.D. released the following statement following the House of Representatives approval of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA).

This afternoon, I voted yes on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (NDAA). As a veteran and representative of a district with a large military presence, taking care of our troops is a top priority. This bill is consistent with President Trump’s topline defense budget request and includes a 3% pay increase for our troops. While the NDAA bill is not perfect, I’m looking forward to working with President Trump and the Senate on a finished product that keeps our nation strong and ensures our servicemembers have what they need.

The William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act provides $740.5 billion for national defense discretionary programs in FY 2021. This includes $69 billion for Overseas Contingency Operations. The bill also provides our troops a 3% pay raise and supports their families with the pay and benefits they deserve, and it provides the Department of Defense with the resources necessary to address COVID-19, including PPE, testing capabilities, and diagnostic testing.
