Senator Johanns e-Update
I am happy to let you know that earlier today the Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The bill contained several of my amendments aimed at helping our service members and veterans, including the Helping Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Return to Employment (HIRE) at Home Act and an amendment to help disabled or injured veterans with special housing needs. The NDAA also authorized funding to continue work on the much-needed new headquarters building for Strategic Command (STRATCOM) at Offutt Air Force Base. The bill passed by a vote of 98-0, with my support.
Our men and women in uniform put themselves in harm's way protecting the freedoms and way of life we too often take for granted. They know their mission will not always be easy, but returning home shouldn't be hard. I believe my amendments will ease that transition by helping our veterans secure good jobs and housing that meets their often unique needs.
