Congressman votes to support troops, strengthen American deterrence

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Nathaniel Moran (R-TX-01) released the following statement after voting for the Servicemember Quality of Life Improvement and National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2025, which passed the U.S. House of Representatives by a vote of 217-199: “Today, our military faces unprecedented attacks on every front, from increasing Chinese aggression and attempts by foreign adversaries to compromise our military intelligence to efforts by bureaucrats to radicalize our military with woke policies. This year’s NDAA addresses important challenges faced by our current state of national defense, including improving our servicemembers’ quality of life, restoring the focus on our military lethality, deterring China, defending Israel, securing our border, and enhancing our military capabilities. By addressing these challenges, the FY25 NDAA will save taxpayers $30 billion by cutting out inefficient defense programs, obsolete weapons systems, and unnecessary Pentagon bureaucracy. In addition, the legislation contains key measures to prioritize military capabilities in Texas and to invest in our servicemembers and their families stationed there.
