This week, the House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023. Congressman Pat Fallon (TX-04) and his colleagues on the House Armed Services Committee have worked tirelessly on this legislation. Congressman Fallon had 20 initiatives added in the final bill. Those provisions include:

  1. HMMWV ABS/ESC Authorization - $193 million. An increase of $183 million over the President’s request. This will fuel jobs at Red River Army Depot and save countless lives.
  2. Rescinding COVID-19 vaccine mandates and ending separations for failure to comply.
  3. Fully funding National Guard Operations and Maintenance account to support border deployments. 
  4. Prohibiting the closure of the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and the transfer of terrorists to the United States. 
  5. Accelerating the transition to 5G information and communications technology within the military departments.
  6. Modifying the annual report on the military capabilities of Iran and related activities.

Congressman Fallon issued the following statement on the final passage of the FY23 NDAA:

“This year’s National Defense Authorization Act provides our armed services with the necessary resources to defend our interests around the world. Within the bill were 20 provisions I fought for that will strengthen our national security and support the state of Texas. I am proud to have worked with colleagues to successfully pass our nation’s defense bill for the 62nd consecutive year. As long as I am in Congress, I will continue support policies that ensure a strong national defense.”
