WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) today named Republican lawmakers from the House Armed Services Committee to the House-Senate conference committee for the National Defense Authorization Act. In March, the House passed its version of the national defense bill, and the Senate followed suit last week.

“After years of our armed forces being hollowed out, we are on the road to rebuilding America’s military,” Speaker Ryan said. “This defense bill is about keeping the fundamental promises we have made to our service members and their families. These lawmakers devote so much of their time and energy to working with our military, and I look forward to the final legislation that they produce.”
