Hudson Cosponsors Military Family Readiness Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) has cosponsored Military Family Readiness legislation intended to be included in the FY21 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
“As Fort Bragg’s Congressman, I understand that the strength of our warfighters depends on not only the training and resources we provide them, but also the support we provide to their families,” said Rep. Hudson. “This legislation directly addresses many of the concerns I've heard from Fort Bragg families including reforms to strengthen family readiness initiatives such as the Exceptional Family Member Program which provides access to health care and special needs education. As a champion of opioid epidemic legislation, I am also proud this bill requires the Department of Defense to develop a policy to address opioid abuse.”
The legislation was introduced this month by Reps. Mac Thornberry and Trent Kelly. In addition to improving the Exceptional Family Member Program and addressing opioid abuse, the bill streamlines communications and ways to measure family readiness, provides for 24-hour childcare in critical locations, improves education at DODEA schools, supports care for autistic dependents, identifies ways to improve behavioral health and connects military spouses with more job opportunities.
