WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan (D-NH) helped secure key bipartisan provisions in the Senate’s version of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2023 (NDAA).
“This year, we have seen a range of threats that risk the safety and security of the American people, from Putin’s invasion of Ukraine to ongoing challenges with our supply chains – our bill comes at critical time for our nation’s defense,” said Senator Hassan. “I am glad that the upcoming defense bill includes bipartisan priorities that I have pushed for, including cracking down on illicit drug traffickers in order to combat the opioid epidemic, strengthening security for houses of worship, and closing loopholes that allow Putin to fund his unconscionable war. As the Senate and House work together to get this bill done, I will continue to push for critical measures that support New Hampshire’s military institutions and that fortify our national security.”
