Hill Votes to Support Military Families and Stand Up to the Communist Chinese Party
WASHINGTON D.C. — Today, Rep. French Hill (AR-02) issued the following statement after voting to override President Trump’s veto of the National Defense Authorization Act.
“Despite the president’s criticism of this measure, I voted to override his veto because we need to fund the military and this legislation, contrary to some views, is tough on China. This year’s NDAA includes 43 policy recommendations from the China Task Force report, including a new Pacific Deterrence Initiative, which aims to establish a regionwide approach to countering China. It also beefs up the U.S. Government’s oversight tools to address the CCP's human rights abuses and support for Taiwan. I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure that our nation is secure and has the resources it needs to keep the American people safe.”
