Washington, D.C.- Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act:
"Today, Congress once again fulfilled its obligation to provide for a common defense. This National Defense Authorization Act ensures our national-security strategy can once again begin to drive our military budget, rather than the budget setting our strategy. I'm pleased President Obama has moved beyond last month's political games and plans to sign this bill into law. Arkansas and America will be stronger and safer because of this legislation."
