WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (R-NC), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, secured the authorization of $266.7 million for North Carolina military installations in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) which passed out of committee this week. Since being elected in 2015, Senator Tillis has secured more than $3 billion for North Carolina’s military installations. The bill now heads to the Senate floor for consideration.

“North Carolina’s military installations continue to play a crucial role in protecting the United States against threats all across the world,” said Senator Tillis. “Ensuring Fort Bragg, Camp Lejeune, Cherry Point, New River, and Seymour Johnson have the resources they need to successfully protect our great nation has been a top priority of mine since the first day I took office. I am proud to have secured more than $3 billion for North Carolina’s military installations, and I will continue to work hard for our brave men and women in uniform.”
