Boozman Votes to Approve National Security Assistance Package

Legislation Supports U.S. Allies, Invests in Arkansas’s Defense Industry

Apr 23 2024

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement after voting to approve legislation that supports America’s allies, serves our national security interests and bolsters the domestic defense industrial base:

“American leadership is the most effective tool to deter conflict and promote the values that advance global stability and prosperity, particularly when the world is more dangerous now than in decades. We cannot ignore or minimize rising threats and must support our allies directly confronting them – as this national security package does. By countering Russian, Chinese and Iranian aggression, we are emboldening the allies of freedom and making strategic investments in our own defense capabilities, including through vital arms manufacturing operations in Camden, Arkansas.”
