Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today thanked President Trump for supporting our military by signing H.R. 2810, the National Defense Authorization Act into law. This bill authorizes funding to provide our military with critical resources to protect our nation from growing threats overseas. This legislation provides $634 billion for our military, including funds to modernize equipment and supply new aircraft, ships, and vehicles.  It also gives our troops a 2.4% pay raise, the biggest pay raise in eight years.

“Our government has a sacred duty to ensure our military receives the best training, equipment and support we can provide,” Rep. Pete Olson said. “As a Navy veteran, one of my top priorities is ensuring our military has the tools they need to protect our nation from growing threats overseas. This legislation gives our troops a much deserved pay raise and supports military readiness by investing in the resources and equipment our troops need to keep us safe in an increasingly dangerous world. I thank President Trump for also supporting the courageous men and women who risk everything to protect our homeland.”
