Press Release

Washington, D.C.–Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21), Vice-Chair of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Readiness, joined Reps. Chris Gibson (R-NY-19) and Mike Turner (R-OH-10) as an original cosponsor of the Protecting Our Security Through Utilizing Right-Sized End-Strength (POSTURE) Act of 2016. 

“The American people are right to be uneasy about our nation’s security, as all one has to do is open a newspaper to see the continuing threats our nation and allies face across the globe,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “This important legislation would ensure that we have a land forces end-strength to face the world’s challenges and protect our nation. I commend Reps. Gibson and Turner for their work on this critical national security legislation.”

The POSTURE Act ensures that our Land Forces will not be depleted as a result of the Administration’s flawed assumptions about the current security environment. Click here for bill text.
