Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Ted Yoho (FL-03) voted against H.R. 1960, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 today.

After the vote, Congressman Yoho said, "The number one charge of the federal government is national security. The goals of NDAA are important, and I supported amendments to improve its respect for our constitutional rights, but I could not support it in its final form.

"My record in support of our nation's military is unwavering. In March, I supported the Continuing Resolution that guaranteed military pay and benefits. In light of what we've learned over the last few weeks about abuses of power in the name of national security, however, I could not vote to continue policies that leave too much to interpretation for the civil liberties of American citizens."
