Defense Bill Passed the House

Congressman Mike Johnson predicted the US House would pass the National Defense Authorization Bill during a Town Hall meeting at Grand Cane on November.  When the bill came up on the floor, Johnson (LA-04) voted in support of the bill.  It passed the House of Representatives on Tuesday evening by a bipartisan vote.

Johnson mentioned during the Town Hall that this bill would fund major priorities for our country’s national defense and for Louisiana’s 4th Congressional District, which is home to Barksdale Air Force Base and the Global Strike Command, Fort Polk and the Joint Readiness Training Center, and the Louisiana National Guard Training Site at Camp Minden.
