Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act. 

This important legislation sets defense policy for the year and includes a pay raise for U.S. soldiers. 

The pay raise of 2.1 percent is the largest pay increase in six years. 

Congressman John Moolenaar (R-Midland) voted for the legislation and made the following statement: 

“Our troops make sacrifices every day to keep us safe. They have earned a pay raise and this legislation is a small part of thanking them and their families for their service to our nation.”
