Majority Leader Schumer Statement On House Passage Of The NDAA

New York, NY – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement regarding the House passage of this year’s NDAA:

“For more than 60 years, Democrats and Republicans have worked in good faith to pass the NDAA. The Senate’s defense authorization process has always been a model of how both sides can work constructively to provide for our nation’s defense, take care of our service members and DOD civilians, and make the investments necessary to innovate for the future.

“Unsurprisingly, the legislation coming out of the House today is loaded with anti-LGBTQ, anti-choice, anti-environment, and other divisive amendments guaranteed not to pass the Senate.

“As we move forward with this year’s NDAA process, both sides will have to work together to pass bipartisan legislation that honors and respects all who serve in defense of our nation.”
