Washington, D.C. – Wyoming Congresswoman and House Armed Services Committee Member Liz Cheney (R-WY) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2022 this evening. Passage of this bill comes after the House and Senate reached a bipartisan and bicameral agreement after months of negotiations:

“Congress has no more important duty than providing for the security of our nation and I’m pleased we have worked in a broad bipartisan fashion to advance legislation that will fulfill this obligation.

“This NDAA delivers resources needed to defend against our adversaries. In addition, the legislation gives our troops the pay raise they deserve and ensures that we continue to fund the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent which will be deployed in Wyoming at F.E. Warren. 

“I look forward to the Senate passing this legislation so we can meet the responsibility we have to support our military and bolster our national security efforts.”
