Kelly supports NDAA committee vote

The House Armed Services Committee has passed the Fiscal Year 2022 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a vote of 57 to 2.

Mississippi First District Congressman Trent Kelly had these comments about the committee action following the vote.  

“The passage of the NDAA out of the Armed Services Committee marks the next major step in ensuring that we are sustaining our victories against foreign adversaries, protecting the homeland, and providing adequate resources to the men and women of our Armed Forces,” Rep. Kelly said. “H.R. 4350, the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), demonstrates how Congress can work collaboratively and focus on the common good. As the bill moves to a full House vote in the near future, I look forward to ensuring its passage and becoming law,” 

This year’s bill includes several amendments that Rep. Kelly authored aimed at improving national security, efficiencies within the Department of Defense, and the quality of life of our men and women in uniform.
