Congressman French Hill statement after President Signs Law Supporting Arkansas Military and Families

WASHINGTON –  Congressman French Hill (AR-02) issued the following statement after President Trump signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law:

“I appreciate President Trump signing into law a bill that continues our support for Arkansans – and their families – serving in our nation’s military. This is the fifty-fourth consecutive year that Congress has worked in a bipartisan fashion to ensure funding for vital functions of our armed forces. This includes more than $200 million for modernization for the C-130 Hercules fleet, which is the backbone of our Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard airmen and airwomen at Little Rock Air Force Base. It also gives our military personnel a much-deserved 2.4 percent pay increase. Our military is the most effective military in the world, and our brave men and women in uniform deserve the funding, tools, and support to successfully complete their strategic missions around the globe.”
