Scott Votes in Support of FY18 Defense Spending Bill

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) voted in support of the FY18 National Defense Authorization Act. Read his full statement below:

“Whatever the crisis or mission, our service members stand ready to protect and defend our national interests around the globe. They take on a broad range of missions, often risking their own safety, to tackle anything from fighting terror and extremism, to carrying out humanitarian aid missions like we recently saw in regions affected by devastating hurricanes.

Our brave men and women in uniform are trained to carry out their duties, and it is up to us to ensure they have the resources, equipment, and technology they need to stay ahead of the next threat. The National Defense Authorization Act considered today encourages innovation, growth, and sends a clear message that our national security is a top priority. God bless our troops, both at home and abroad, who are working hard to keep us safe.”
