Moolenaar votes to support military families with a pay raise and more resources

On Tuesday night, Congressman John Moolenaar voted in favor of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for 2022.

 

The legislation includes a pay increase for U.S. servicemembers and extends retention bonuses for those who stay in the military. Additionally, the legislation increases parental leave and provides more support to military families with special needs children.  

 

"I am proud to help support our brave servicemembers with increased pay and more resources for them and their families," said Congressman John Moolenaar. "This legislation will also give them the tools they need to keep the American people safe and meet the rising challenges from Russia, China, and terrorist organizations. Finally, this year's NDAA increases accountability and forces the Biden Administration to outline a plan for bringing home Americans who are still stranded in Afghanistan."

 

The NDAA also has a number of provisions related to the ongoing situation in Afghanistan, including a requirement for the Administration to brief Congress on how it will get Americans out of Afghanistan. There is also a prohibition on the Defense Department providing financial support to the Taliban and a prohibition on using U.S. aircraft to deliver cash to the Taliban.
