Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY-21) issued the following statement after President Donald Trump signed the Fiscal Year 2018 (FY18) National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report into law, which included three bills authored by Rep. Elise Stefanik.
“The federal government has no greater role than providing for our national defense, and I am pleased that this critical, bipartisan national security legislation was signed into law today,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The FY18 NDAA contains many important provisions I was proud to support, including the largest pay raise for our troops in eight years. I am also pleased that my legislation -- the Lift the Relocation Burden from Military Spouses Act and the Military Family Stability Act – was included and will now become law, helping to ease the burdens facing our military families. This important bill also includes legislation I authored to better protect our nation against cyber threats and attacks on our critical infrastructure.”
