Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Ken Buck (CO-04) voted for The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 (S. 2943). The NDAA provides $619 billion for national defense purposes and includes a 2.1% pay raise for America’s troops, the largest raise in the past six years. The bill also ends the reductions in troops, provides advanced funding for submarines and amphibious ships, improves healthcare quality for our troops and their families, and continues the prohibition on the transfer of Guantanamo Bay Detention Center detainees to the United States.
“If we’re going to maintain peace in this world, then we must have a strong military,” Congressman Ken Buck remarked about the legislation. “This NDAA takes care of our troops while equipping them to adequately defend our nation.”
