Dr. Bucshon Votes to Rebuild and Strengthen Armed Forces, Supports National Defense Authorization Act Conference Report

(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) released the following statement after voting for the National Defense Authorization Act Conference Report (H.R. 2810):

“Our military safeguards the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. To carry out their mission, our troops must be properly equipped and taken care of.  This year’s NDAA authorizes the funding needed to ensure our troops have the equipment and resources they need, authorizes the largest pay increase to our troops in eight years, increases the size of multiple branches of the armed forces, and permanently preserves payments to more than 60,000 surviving military spouses. As a former Navy reservist for nearly a decade, it is important to me that we provide our brave servicemen and women with the tools they need to get the job done.” 


Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. is a physician and Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving his fourth term representing Indiana's 8th Congressional district. The 8th District of Indiana includes all or parts of Clay, Crawford, Daviess, Dubois, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Martin, Owen, Parke, Perry, Pike, Posey, Spencer, Sullivan, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo, and Warrick counties.
