Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC—U.S. Representative Martha McSally today released the following statement on her vote in support of the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) conference report:

“Southern Arizona is a major hub of military power. Our bases are indispensable for our national security and vital to our local communities. The final defense bill the House passed today correctly prioritizes and supports our state’s assets. It restarts much-needed A-10 upgrades and authorizes $103 million to begin re-winging the Warthog fleet, increases funding for the missions at Ft. Huachuca, and provides additional resources for Raytheon’s missile defense systems. Every single provision I fought for on behalf of Arizona is secured in this conference report, and I urge the Senate to also approve it so we can get it to President Trump’s desk.”
