Congress must uphold one of its primary functions which is to provide for the common defense. But the importance of investing in advanced military technologies is only surpassed by the obligation we have to our volunteer servicemembers that devote their lives to protecting our country and our freedoms. We must ensure that they receive the resources they need to successfully complete their mission in service to our country.
Locally, great work is being done, especially in research, development and testing, by the hardworking men and women at China Lake and Edwards. Our district remains heavily engaged in protecting our nation and ensuring that our national defense remains on the cutting edge, and I have been working with our defense community to strengthen, modernize, and advance priorities that will help our region lead our nation’s defense capabilities for decades to come.
