Washington, D.C. – Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-02) today released the following statement after voting in support of a waiver to permit General Lloyd Austin to be confirmed as Secretary of Defense:

“In 2017, a bipartisan majority in the House approved the same waiver when General Mattis was nominated to serve as President Trump’s Defense Secretary. Today, I was pleased to join my colleagues in the House in maintaining that same bipartisan consistency by voting in support of a waiver for a position that is critical to keeping Americans safe and leading our men and women in uniform.”
