First and foremost, the NDAA is the legislation through which we in Congress ‘provide for the common defense.’ That is an important responsibility.

Both the military and civilian workforce at Hill Air Force Base are vital to our country’s security. Ensuring Utah and the nation are properly supported is my top priority.”

“… as significant as landing a man on the moon …”
This is a prominent symbol of the most significant achievement of the 19th Century. And it is, for transportation, as significant as landing a man on the moon would be for the 20th Century.
