Senator Thom Tillis helps pass NDAA 2020 and gives military largest payraise in history.

Washington, DC — On June 27, U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020. The legislation passed on an overwhelmingly bipartisan basis and supports $750 billion in funding national defense for fiscal year 2020. The bill also includes several key provisions championed by Senator Tillis to improve the lives of our service members and military families, and makes critical improvements to North Carolina’s military installations in the wake of Hurricane Florence.

Additionally, Senator Tillis worked to secure a number of reforms in the FY20 NDAA to take meaningful steps to address the serious issues with the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI). Senator Tillis’ personnel subcommittee markup also addresses military sexual assault prevention and response, provides impact aid for local educational agencies, supports military spouse employment, and expands health care for military members and their families. read more>>>
