U.S. Senators Jack Reed (D-RI) and Roger Wicker (R-MS), the Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today announced the full committee and subcommittee markup schedule for the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2024.
Senator Reed commented: “Each year, the National Defense Authorization Act provides our forces with the resources, training, equipment, and capabilities they need to keep Americans safe. The importance of this mission has never been more urgent, as the security challenges before our nation continue to evolve at an alarming rate. The Armed Services Committee markup is a critical part of the NDAA process, and I look forward to working with Ranking Member Wicker and our colleagues to continue our tradition of thoughtful deliberation and bipartisan collaboration.”
Senator Wicker also commented: “One of the most important tasks entrusted to Congress by the Constitution is providing for the common defense. As we continue our work on the National Defense Authorization Act, it is vital that we retain a laser focus on the growing threats to the United States that have created the most dangerous security environment since World War II,” Wicker said. “Working alongside Chairman Reed and our colleagues, I look forward to a markup process that reflects the urgency and seriousness of this moment.”
