Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, recently gathered over 100 of his colleagues’ signatures calling on Speaker Paul Ryan to bring the repeal of sequestration to a vote:
“Last night President Trump said he will be sending Congress a budget that ‘eliminates the defense sequester.’ Over 100 of my colleagues and I are asking Speaker Ryan to bring a repeal of sequestration to the House floor for a vote. We must end these harmful and senseless budget tactics.”
The letter Congressman Turner is circulating amongst his colleagues includes the following excerpt:
“We must afford our President the ability to restore military readiness and provide him with the necessary tools to protect our interests at home and abroad.”
Congressman Turner is continuing to circulate the letter amongst his colleagues to gain more support before sending it to Speaker Ryan.
