Sen. Cruz Continues Fighting NDAA Provision to Draft Women into Combat

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of going to conference on the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA):

“As the FY2017 NDAA heads to conference, I will continue to work as a conferee to oppose the provision that makes our daughters subject to being drafted into combat,” Sen. Cruz said. “The House wisely decided to listen to the American people regarding this matter and refused to include this provision in their version of the bill. I will continue to fight this provision and urge my colleagues in conference to respect the will of our constituents.”
