Chairman Chabot on Signing of 2016 NDAA:  America’s small businesses can bring quality to the warfighter and value to the taxpayer

WASHINGTON –Small Business Committee Chairman Steve Chabot (R-OH) released the following statement after President Obama signed the FY2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law.

“While I was disappointed in the President’s initial decision to veto the NDAA, I am pleased that he has now approved this vitally important national security measure.  The NDAA has been signed into law 54 years in a row, making it one of the few areas of bipartisan cooperation in an increasingly divided Congress. This NDAA gives our troops the resources they need to defend the United States while providing meaningful contracting reforms that help our small businesses. It cuts down on red tape and streamlines processes that will make it easier for small businesses to work with the Department of Defense to provide quality to the warfighter and value to the taxpayer.”
