Levin Statement on NDAA

Jul 14, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Sander Levin (MI-09) today released the following statement on his vote against the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

“This bill on defense spending, because of its size, will have a major impact on vital domestic programs, which remain subject to spending caps. This is particularly true since there is no overall budget for domestic programs other than President Trump’s plan, which would slash funding for medical research, Medicaid, job training, food assistance, and many other programs that help our communities and families. We will not be able to ensure the strength and safety of our country, as we must, while tearing down vital programs for American families.”
