Rep. Clyde Applauds Passage of FY22 NDAA
Washington, December 8, 2021
Today, Congressman Andrew Clyde (GA-09) released the following statement after the House passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 last night by a vote of 363-70:
“As a 28-year Navy veteran who served three combat tours in Kuwait and Iraq, I strongly believe funding, equipping, and supporting our military is paramount to the security of our great nation. With threats increasing from adversaries across the globe, this year’s NDAA bolsters our capabilities to properly counter threats posed by China, Russia, Iran, and radical terrorist organizations.
“No matter the mission, our brave men and women in uniform answer the call to protect our national interests and preserve our precious freedoms. We owe it to our troops to deliver the support and resources they need, which is why I am pleased that this NDAA provides a well-deserved 2.7% pay increase to our servicemembers and makes historic investments in future warfighter technologies.
“I sincerely commend my Republican colleagues on the House and Senate Armed Service Committees for successfully working with Democrats to remove the poison pills that, as a staunch conservative, I could never support, including the proposed office of Countering Extremism, the proposed ‘Red Flag’ laws, and the requirement for women to register for Selective Service. Now that those partisan provisions have been eliminated, I am proud to support the final passage of this year’s NDAA, which strengthens our nation’s readiness to ensure that we have the most lethal military force in the world.”
Specifically, the conferenced FY22 NDAA:
