Tuberville Kicks Off This Year’s First Listening Session With AL Defense Industry

WASHINGTON –Yesterday, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) led a conference with Alabama defense industry representatives, the first in a series of hearings and events for this year’s National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). As Alabama’s voice on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Coach Tuberville will prioritize input received from Alabama’s defense industry in drafting the next NDAA.

Coach Tuberville opened the call with a review of the wins achieved for Alabama in last year’s NDAA. He emphasized the $2 billion for Alabama’s military bases and defense industries, the pay raise for U.S. troops, the provision to use more Alabama made unmanned vehicles, and the delay of Space Command’s move to Colorado, among many other vital achievements for Alabama. This year’s NDAA will build on these wins for the Yellowhammer state.

Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
