Tuesday night, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2022 passed the U.S. House of Representatives. 

“As the Ranking Member for the Subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations, I am proud to pass the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA),” said Mississippi 1st District Rep. Trent Kelly. “This legislation will ensure Combatant Commanders rapidly receive the intelligence they need in the field, continue modernization efforts safeguarding our competitive edge over China, and eliminate all Red Flag provisions previously included in this bill. I appreciate my defense staff, Rodney Hall, Jr., Tony Starks, and Colin Hawkins, for their steadfast work on this bill.”

“Rep. Kelly has been a leader on the House Armed Services Committee. In his role as Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Intelligence and Special Operations, he has been focused on bolstering our national security,” said Ranking Member Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Alabama). “The FY22 NDAA is bipartisan and bicameral legislation that ensures our service members have the funding and tools they need to be prepared for conflict. I thank Rep. Kelly for his work on this incredibly important piece of legislation.”
