Congressman Turner, Chairman of theHouse Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement after Speaker Ryan appointed 44 House Republican lawmakers to serve on a bipartisan conference committee charged with producing a final National Defense Authorization Act. 

“I look forward to working in a bipartisan manner with my colleagues on this critical piece of legislation. We must  work to reverse the devastating cuts made by sequestration and end the Administration’s draw down of our troops.  As our nation continues to address some of the most dangerous threats we’ve faced both at home and abroad, we must ensure our military services are provided the resources they require in order to meet those threats head on.”
