Delaney Statement on NDAA 2017

May 25, 2016

On May 18 the House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2017.


Delaney Statement on NDAA 2017


“The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017 includes a much-needed and well-deserved pay raise for military personnel, improves our military readiness, boosts our cyber-defense and cyber security capabilities, and supports vital partnerships with our allies. Unfortunately, within this legislation, which is over 1000 pages long, there are a number of provisions that I object to, including an extremely misguided measure that would allow federal contractors to discriminate against LGBT employees. I will continue to work with my colleagues to ensure that the final conference version of the NDAA is stripped of these harmful measures.”
