The House of Representatives today approved H.R. 5856, the Fiscal Year 2013 Defense Appropriations bill. It provides funding for critical national security needs, and provides the resources necessary for supporting our troops and advancing the nation's military interests abroad.
Representative Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) issued the following statement after voting for the bill:
"Making sure the men and women who protect our freedom are properly armed and equipped is a constitutional responsibility. This legislation provides funding that supports our troops here at home and around the world. It makes sure our Armed Forces remain ready to defeat any threat to our security that may arise."
