LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate)-U.S. Senator Jon Tester today worked with Republicans and Democrats to secure a pay raise and increase military readiness for U.S. troops throughout Montana.
Tester voted in support of the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which sets policies for every branch of the military, includes a 2.1 percent pay raise for service members, strengthens the nation's ICBM fleet, and increases the number of active-duty personnel by 14,100.
"This bipartisan bill will bolster national security, improve our missile defense, and provide our service members with a well-deserved pay raise," Tester said. "It is critical that members of the military have the support and certainty they need to carry out their mission and keep Americans safe."
