Tiberi Named to NDAA Conference Committee
Congressman Pat Tiberi released the following statement after being named by Speaker Paul Ryan to serve on the House-Senate conference committee for the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act:
"Ohio’s military installations, and the industries around the state that support them, make critical contributions to America’s national security and military readiness. I’m thankful for their work and for the service of all our men and women in uniform. The NDAA is vital in providing them with the resources they need to keep us safe and secure. I am honored to be named as a conferee for the NDAA and to play a key role in ensuring it is delivered to President Trump’s desk to become law."
Note: The conference committee will resolve the differences between the House and Senate versions of the FY2018 NDAA. Sec. 701 in the Senate bill would set up a demonstration to allow TRICARE beneficiaries to enroll in a modified Medicare Advantage plan. This provision falls under the jurisdiction of the Ways and Means Committee, where Rep. Tiberi serves as the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health.
