Joyce Questions Secretary Austin on DOD Budget Request

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14), member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, questioned Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General C.Q. Brown, and Under Secretary of Defense and Chief Financial Officer Michael McCord on the President’s Fiscal Year 2025 Department of Defense budget request, which unfortunately fails to meet our national security needs.

“At a time when our foreign adversaries are only getting stronger, it is more important than ever to ensure that America’s military has the resources it needs to defend our country and citizens,” said Congressman Joyce. “In today’s hearing, I made clear to Secretary Austin that Congress will prioritize delivering a funding bill for FY2025 that will increase our military readiness, support our servicemembers, strengthen our defense industry, and send a strong message to our adversaries that we are prepared. I also made sure the Defense Department was pushing back against China’s illegal and illegitimate maritime claims in the East and South China Sea. We cannot let their actions go unanswered.”

Congressman Joyce serves on the House Appropriations Subcommittees on Financial Services and General Government (Chairman), Defense, and Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development.
