Washington, D.C.—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on House passage of the national security appropriations minibus:

“We must be vigilant in protecting our homeland. That’s our priority. This legislation funds the most critical functions of government. It secures our borders by providing funding for a wall on our southern border. It gives our service members a raise and ensures they have the tools they need to complete their missions. Additionally, the legislation takes care of our veterans here at home who have kept us safe. I commend my colleagues for standing up for national security today, and I thank the Appropriations Committee for their work on this critical measure.”
