Graves Supports Annual Defense Bill

July 17, 2023

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Sam Graves (MO-06) released the following statement after voting in favor of the FY2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The legislation now moves to the Senate for further consideration.

“This year’s defense bill gives our troops the largest pay raise in 20 years, provides our service members the tools and technology they need to protect our country, and pushes back on the Biden Administration’s woke agenda. This legislation authorizes much-needed funding for the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in northeastern Independence. I am also pleased that it continues protecting the future of the C-130, which is the pride of St. Joe. Finally, it ensures that additional F-15EX aircraft will be produced in Missouri. This bill is a big win for Missouri and America, and I am proud to support it.”
