Washington, D.C.| U.S. Representative Elise Stefanik has been selected to serve on the bipartisan, bicameral House-Senate conference committee tasked with resolving the differences and ensuring successful passage of the FY2021 National Defense Authorization Act.

This is her sixth consecutive year chosen as a conferee.

“I am honored to be chosen once again as a conferee to work on the National Defense Authorization Act, an incredibly important piece of legislation,” Stefanik said Nov. 19 in announcing the selection.

“I will continue to advocate for homeland missile defense and the future East Coast Missile Defense Site project to be completed in the North Country in order to protect the United States. I will also continue to be the number one advocate for the Fort Drum Community to provide them with the necessary resources to successfully rapidly deploy. I am deeply grateful to our men and women in uniform, and their families, for the sacrifices they make in order to protect our freedoms. I look forward to serving as a conferee and working with my colleagues in both the House and the Senate to conference a strong, bipartisan bill and ensure its critical passage on behalf of the North Country and the United States.”
