Conference Report on H.R. 4310, National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


(Mr. ANDREWS asked and was given permission to revise and extend his remarks.)

Mr. ANDREWS. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of this legislation and commend Mr. McKeon and Mr. Smith for their leadership in making it happen.

Most importantly, this legislation takes care of the people most important to us--the men and women in uniform who will receive a pay raise under this legislation.

Second, it maintains our competitive edge in technology as we look for new ways to defend our country and improve our situation around the world.

Third, I believe very strongly this bill affirms the Constitution of the United States; makes it clear that nothing in any statute, including this one, in any way subverts or undercuts the Fifth Amendment due process rights of any person under any circumstances. For these reasons, I would urge my friends both on the Republican and Democratic side to vote ``yes.''
