WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12), Chairwoman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, released the following statement after the United States conducted a targeted military strike in Syria.
The House Appropriations Defense Subcommittee oversees more than 50 percent of discretionary funding. As Chairwoman of this Subcommittee, I am committed to rebuilding our military to keep the United States and our allies safe.
I often hear from veterans in the 12th District about their dealings with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – both good and bad. That is why I am proud to support legislation in the House which takes important steps to help our veterans.
The number one concern of people in the 12th District is the future of the American healthcare system. This is a primary concern of mine, and why I wanted to give you more information on what is happening now in Washington.
Mr. Chairman, I rise in strong support of H.R. 1301, the FY17 Department of Defense Appropriations Act.
The world is more dangerous and unstable than any time is recent history. The U.S. and our allies face constant threats from countries including Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea. ISIS and other global terrorists threaten our very way of life.
This Congress has more energy and urgency than I’ve seen during my time serving the 12th District. A large reason for this is because the American people expect results from this unified government. Congress must follow through on the promises made to fix some of the largest, most-pressing policy challenges facing our country.
The Congressional Review Act became law in 1996 and allows Congress to easily overturn harmful federal regulations. I wanted to provide some information about this little-known Act, which is allowing Congress to review and roll back these burdensome policies.
One of the top priorities of House Republicans this year is cutting red tape in order to help promote a healthy economy that benefits all Americans. Here is another way we’re delivering on that priority.
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-TX), Chair of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, today announced the hiring of a retired Navy Captain with years of experience at the Pentagon as her new Chief of Staff.
The United States funds 22 percent of the United Nations regular budget and is the largest contributor of any member state. The United States must ensure that the United Nations does not become a venue to target our allies and undermine our national security.
