Senator David Perdue On The Signing Of Major Defense Bill Into Law

“President Trump is strengthening our military by ensuring our troops have the resources they need”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, commented on President Trump’s signing of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law today, which includes 30 of Senator Perdue’s priorities:

“One of six reasons why 13 colonies came together in the first place was to provide for the national defense. President Trump has shown he is committed to carrying out this responsibility as our country’s commander in chief. By signing this defense bill into law today, President Trump is strengthening our military by approving a well-deserved pay raise for our troops and ensuring they have the resources they need. I am proud to have worked on the negotiating team that finalized this bill, which includes many priorities important to our national security and Georgia’s military community."
