Bono Votes to Approve Defense Authorization Act
Bill Will Increase Funding for Needed Equipment
To provide for our country's defense and promote the welfare of our heroic men and women in uniform, Congresswoman Mary Bono (CA-45) voted to approve H.R. 5122, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 - the annual funding blueprint for the Department of Defense and America's military activities.
"Protecting our homeland and ensuring that the brave men and women of our armed forces have the resources they need to effectively fight the war on terror is of utmost importance," said Congresswoman Bono. "This bill addresses the continuing threat our country faces, and its passage will help ensure that we continue to stay one step ahead of those that seek to harm to our country."
