Interview: Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers on the Defense Policy Bill

The House on Friday passed a defense policy bill that calls for more ships, aircraft, and soldiers, and authorizes $696 billion in defense spending in fiscal year 2018, well above President Trump’s request.

The House approved the National Defense Authorization Act after days of debate that saw lawmakers block many controversial amendments to the bill, including a proposed ban on transgender medical care for troops and the closure of excess military facilities.

Today Lars talked with WA Representative Cathy McMorris Rogers about the new defense policy bill.
