WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement in support of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):
“Protecting our national security must be a top priority. We face constantly evolving threats from around the world and we must provide the resources our military needs to stay one step ahead of these dangers. This bill prioritizes modernization and military readiness so we can be prepared for today’s missions and tomorrow’s challenges. Members of our Armed Forces are committed to serving our country and we must honor our obligation to ensure they have the tools and training necessary to be successful.”
The bill includes an amendment authored by Boozman that requires a report that will support a concept to centrally locate manufacturing, storage and distribution of designated Chemical Biological Defense Equipment at defense department arsenals, like Pine Bluff Arsenal.
