LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly’s provision requiring a comprehensive strategy from the Administration and the Department of Defense to confront the threat posed by North Korea is heading to the President’s desk to be signed into law. His provision was included in the final national defense bill that passed the Senate today. Donnelly helped negotiate the final defense bill, which passed the House of Representatives earlier this week.
In September, Donnelly’s amendment requiring the administration to bring to Congress, within 90 days of enactment, a strategy to address North Korea’s threat to our country and our allies, passed as part of the bipartisan National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Donnelly spoke on the Senate floor then about his amendment.
Donnelly, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said, “North Korea continues to pose one of the greatest threats to our national security. The American people and our partners and allies around the world need to know that we have a comprehensive strategy to address the Kim regime’s nuclear weapons program. My provision included in this bipartisan national defense bill, now on its way to President Trump’s desk to be signed into law, would ensure that Congress is able to review and understand the President’s strategy for keeping our country safe.”
