Press Release
WASHINGTON—The House of Representatives and U.S. Senate released the final draft of the fiscal year (FY) 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01) served as  a House negotiator, working with Senate counterparts on some of the key terms of the agreement.

Among other things, the FY2015 legislation includes additional funding for our nation's military depots, prevents the transfer of Apache helicopters from the National Guard to the Army, includes funding to support the Tomahawk Cruise Missile, and includes a one year prohibition on Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) proceedings.

"This bill does some good things for our national defense capabilities. However, the nature of a negotiation is that compromises have to be made and, in the end, nobody walks away completely satisfied," said Congressman Bishop.  "I am especially pleased that this legislation includes funding for our nation's Depots, like the Ogden Air Logistics Complex, which provides key maintenance and logistical support for our nation's warfighter and other weapon systems," said Congressman Bishop.
