After sixteen straight hours of in-depth work and negotiation, the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act was passed out of the House Armed Services Committee by a near-unanimous vote. I had numerous important amendments added to the bill including ones designed to secure NORTHCOM in its Colorado Springs location, increasing funding for anti-tunneling efforts designed to combat terrorism and drug trafficking, recognizing the local National Museum of World War II Aviation, augmenting our efforts to counteract Iranian military, cyber warfare, and terrorism undertakings, and addressing other critical needs in the Directed Energy, Missile Defense, Cyber Security, and Commercial Space realms. I take my responsibilities on the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) very seriously. Each year, those of us on the committee work hard to pass the best and most bipartisan legislation possible. This is so critical because, without the annual NDAA, the military would not be able to operate. Because the NDAA must pass each year, I have the opportunity, as a senior and influential member of the HASC, to shape policy. The amendments I successfully fought against sought to tie military spending to the environmentalist agenda, social engineering efforts, and other special interests at the expense of our real national security needs. In contrast, the amendments I added will help address many important national security needs both here in Colorado, and around the globe.

ICYMI: Last night, Democrats and the Obama Administration threatened to block the passage of the NDAA over a single amendment. The amendment in question would prohibit U.S. dollars from purchasing heavy water (a precursor to plutonium) from Iran--a crucial step for global security. Rather than focus on strengthening our military or giving our brave men and women overseas the resources they need, Obama has made it clear that he would rather pad his legacy and play nice with the leading sponsor of state terrorism. Members of Congress cannot do our job to "provide for the common defense" with constant interference from the Administration.
