Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), member of the House Armed Services Committee and Vice-Chair on the Readiness Subcomittee, was selected by Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI-01) to serve on the formal House-Senate conference committee charged with resolving differences over the FY2017 National Defense Authorization Act.

“I am grateful to Speaker Ryan for selecting me to serve again on the bicameral NDAA conference committee,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This legislation is critical to providing for our nation’s security and it’s important that our district and Fort Drum have a seat at the table during negotiations. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to secure a strong NDAA that gives our brave men and women in uniform the resources they need to keep us safe.”
