Walberg Votes to Raise Troop Pay and Strengthen National Security
Washington, D.C.—Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for the House-Senate conference report to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, which funds the military, supports military families, gives our troops a well-deserved pay raise, and helps keep the American people safe. The bipartisan agreement passed the House by a 356-70 vote.
“We live in a world of dangerous, complex, and emerging threats that span the globe,” said Congressman Walberg. “To meet the national security challenges of our time, we must rebuild our military and ensure our troops are trained, equipped, and ready to respond at any moment. The men and women who serve in harm’s way deserve our unwavering support, and I’m pleased our service members will receive their largest pay raise in eight years under this bipartisan bill.”
Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg's work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
