Washington — U.S. Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, released the following statement Friday after House Democrats passed the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA.

“For decades the NDAA has been widely bipartisan, but unfortunately, this year, the House Democrats decided to play political games with our military’s funding authorization,” Carter said. “By making arbitrary funding cuts and cutting the military personnel accounts that handle troop pay, housing and benefits by $1.2 billion, Democrats are signaling that politics is more important than our men and women in uniform.” | 254-501-7554
