LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today announced that the U.S. Senate approved the conference committee’s bicameral agreement on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2018, which included key victories for Maine. Senator King served on the conference committee that reconciled the differences between the Senate’s version, which passed by a vote of 89-8, and the version advanced by the House of Representatives. The bill will now go to the President for his signature.
“Throughout this process, I have proudly highlighted the important role that the people of Maine play in our national defense,” said Senator King. “This final bill will make sure Maine’s military personnel and workers in defense-related industries have the resources they need to continue making important contributions to national security. Now that the final bill has been passed, I hope that Congress can continue to work toward the best interest of both national safety and the economy by finally acting to end sequestration.”
