WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement on Senate passage of the supplemental security legislation:

“An increasingly dangerous world underscores the need for strong, reliable and resolute American leadership. The Senate has taken the first step to ensure the U.S. continues to play this vital role, especially with respect to supporting key partners and allies facing serious threats, as well as replenish our own lethal munitions and equipment to deter conflict. 

“I’m disappointed that, at every turn, opportunities to amend and improve this measure were met with inflexible resistance. Yet it was still important to advance the process so the House of Representatives can influence these policies and help secure even better outcomes. If and when that occurs, I look forward to considering any modifications to this baseline bill.

“Congress can and should also insist on providing the necessary tools to defend America’s borders or risk undermining our own credibility and security. This is not a moment to shrink back from our responsibilities at home or abroad, and I trust my colleagues will take that to heart for the good of our nation.”
