Hoeven Statement After the Senate Was Blocked from Considering Defense Appropriations Bill

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today issued the following statement after the Senate was blocked from considering the Fiscal Year 2020 Defense Appropriations Bill, along with three other full-year funding bills. 

“Our men and women in uniform deserve the certainty that comes with this full-year funding bill,” said Hoeven. “This legislation makes important investments in our military, including resources to modernize our nuclear forces and advance UAS capabilities. We need our colleagues to join with us in approving this defense funding, and provide our servicemembers with the resources they need to protect our nation.”
