He did it again, and he isn’t even a member of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee. Congressman Michael San Nicolas has announced the House’s passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, which includes $765 million in Defense spending on Guam and a directive to prioritize a missile defense system on the island. The annual NDAA also contains a provision for a pay raise for military servicemen and women.
The following is the news release from the Office of Congressman Michael San Nicolas:
The 2022 National Defense Authorization Act has passed the House of Representatives, funding Guam military projects at $765 million and prioritizing action on missile defense.
“At a critical time in our economic recovery these growing Armed Services investments into Guam will continue to provide much needed capital influx to our island as we meet our National Security priorities,” said Congressman San Nicolas. “Additionally, we specifically push the advancement of missile defense on Guam with direct language requiring the Secretary of Defense to ensure that we are secured over the next decade,” Congressman San Nicolas added. “Further, we are very pleased that the legislation contains a 2.7% increase in basic pay compensation for military personnel across the country, who put themselves and their families on the line for the freedoms we enjoy,” Congressman San Nicolas continued.
“Merry Christmas; and God bless Guam, the United States, and all members and veterans of our Armed Services,” Congressman San Nicolas concludes.
