Shelley Moore Capito said ( about National Defense Authorization Act ) : “I am glad that after several weeks of unnecessary delays by the Democrat leadership and their focus on misguided fiscal policies, we were able to direct our attention to what should be a primary national priority, and that is our national defense. It is absolutely essential that we support our military, and the NDAA does just that. We were also able to resist the radical policy ideas put forth in the initial House-passed and Senate-drafted versions of this legislation,” “This legislation, which the Senate has a strong history of working together in a bipartisan way to pass, provides critical training and equipment for our military, including approximately 6,400 members of the West Virginia National Guard and the many West Virginians currently fighting emerging threats around the world. It also ensures our military is equipped with the proper tools needed to effectively do their jobs, funds our military and key national security priorities, supports service families, and so much more. For decades, we have been able to overcome our partisan differences and unify on supporting our defense and national security, and I was proud to continue this tradition today by passing this legislation” External link
