WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today after President Donald Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 in to law this afternoon.

“I was proud to see the National Defense Authorization Act for FY18 become law today with President Trump’s signature.  This critical piece of legislation funds the Pentagon, takes care of our brave men and women in uniform and helps the Anniston Army Depot.  This legislation also includes the transfer of 1911s to the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) so they can prepare and sell the firearms to law-abiding citizens.  I am proud to have served as a conferee on this important bill and pleased to see it become law.”

Rogers serves as a senior member on the House Armed Services Committee and the Chairman of the Strategic Forces subcommittee.
