Local Congressman Turner not a fan of Democrats’ defense bill

In a statement, the Dayton Republican, who opposed the bill during a committee vote last week, said the bill “undermines our national security, weakens our defenses, and emboldens our adversaries to challenge us. The provisions that have been forced into the bill—provisions which make us less safe as a nation and ultimately led to today’s breakdown of the Committee—will not make it through conference or become law.”

Turner serves as the Ranking Member on the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces.
