Poliquin helps strike down amendment that would have blocked a U.S. military study on the effects of climate change on our Nation’s defenses

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) joined a bipartisan group of lawmakers in voting down an amendment that would have blocked a U.S. military study on the effects of climate change on our Nation’s defenses.

 

Congressman Poliquin joined Democrats and Republicans in a 185-234 vote in striking down the Perry Amendment to the 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

 

“Our military must be prepared for every possible threat and have the capability to protect our national security,” said Congressman Poliquin. “This study is important for ensuring that our Armed Forces have the tools they need to carry out their mission and defend our Nation.”
