Statement of Rep. Frelinghuysen on the veto of the FY17 National Defense Authorization Act

Statement of Rep. Frelinghuysen, Chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee:

“I am deeply disappointed that the President has chosen to veto this important national security legislation. At a time when our troops, and those of our allies, are fighting terrorists around the globe and Russia and China are taking advantage of America’s lack of leadership in the world, this veto is a huge mistake.”
