Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces and of the U.S. Delegation to NATO released the following statement after North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM):

“North Korea’s ICBM test re-affirms the need to strengthen and expand America’s missile defense systems and military readiness. We continue to face unpredictable and dangerous threats and I am hopeful that Congress will quickly pass a National Defense Authorization Act that provides our troops the resources they need to address these complex global threats.”
