Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25) released the following statement after the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2018.

“The United States faces the most dangerous and complex strategic situation in decades. We must ensure that our armed forces have the robust resources they need to defend our country and protect U.S. national security interests. The NDAA is a key step toward improving our readiness against our enemies, modernizing our forces, and providing staunch allies like Israel with American support. Most importantly, this legislation is a reminder to our men and women in uniform that they have the full support of Congress and this administration. I am committed to continue working with my colleagues to make sure the U.S. military has the tools it needs to defend our stars and stripes in the 21st century.”
