Senator Budd Secures Wins for North Carolina in FY 2024 Defense Bill

Washington, D.C. — Senator Ted Budd (R-NC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, voted to advance the Fiscal Year 2024 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to the Senate floor.

Senator Budd secured a 5.2% pay raise for North Carolina servicemembers and their families, as well as nearly $400 million for construction at North Carolina’s military installations.

Senator Budd also led the effort to ensure this year’s NDAA sends a strong message that reductions to special operations force structure should not be considered given the vital and increasing role special operations forces play in strategic competition in addition to conducting counter-terrorism operations and responding to no-notice crises.

“As a member of the Armed Services Committee, I know how much North Carolina contributes to America’s strength on the world stage. The Old North State has a proud tradition of supporting our military, and it is my honor to vote for an NDAA that supports North Carolina’s servicemembers, their families, and our military installations. This year’s package also helps the United States confront the Chinese Communist Party, invests in American manufacturing, and secures critical supply chains. I will continue working to get this important bill across the finish line and signed into law.”
