Lummis Statement on Vote Against National Defense Authorization Act

Statement

U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) released the following statement regarding her vote in opposition to the FY '12 National Defense Authorization Act:

"Although the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) contains important provisions for national defense, after careful review of the legislation, I believe that the language in the bill muddies the water concerning the due process rights granted to American citizens by the Constitution. Granting authority to indefinitely detain American citizens suspected of terrorism without charge and without sufficiently addressing what rights an American citizen has if they are suspected of terrorism and arrested on U.S. soil, sets a troubling precedent."
