WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, September 23rd, 2021, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02) released the following statement after voting YES on H.R. 4350, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022:
“Ensuring that our military is properly equipped is one of Congress’ top priorities. This bipartisan bill provides top-of-the-line weapons and equipment, increases servicemember pay by 2.7%, and provides $25 billion more in funding over the President’s budget request,” said Miller-Meeks. “I was pleased to see provisions I fought for were included in this package, including my bipartisan Veterans in Parks Act, my DHS Medical Countermeasures Act, the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Location Act, continuing to investigate the origins of COVID-19, and holding the Administration accountable for the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. I look forward to working with my colleagues to get this legislation to the President’s desk.”
