Hudson Applauds Passage of Critical Defense Bill
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement applauding passage of the bipartisan, bicameral FY16 National Defense Authorization Act:
 
“As turmoil explodes across the globe and barbaric terrorist like ISIS and murderous regimes like Iran seek to destroy our country, America must maintain a strong system for defense. This legislation is not perfect, but it is a step in the right direction to address the growing threats we face in a cost-efficient, responsible way.
 
“Additionally, it continues our fight to keep the 440th operating and halts reckless, short-sighted cuts to operations at Fort Bragg – the epicenter of the universe. I applaud Congresswoman Ellmers’s and Senator Tillis’s leadership and will continue to be steadfast in my partnership with them to support North Carolina’s defense facilities.”
 
Click here to read the amendment that requires the Secretary of the Air Force, the Secretary of the Army, the Chief of Staff of the Air Force, and the Chief of Staff of the Army, in consultation with the commanders of the XVIII Airborne Corps, the 82nd Airborne Division, and the United States Army Special Operations Command, to jointly certify that the removal of the 440th Airlift Wing will have no impact on Airborne and Special Operations units’ readiness.
