Congressman Davis’ office says his bipartisan record of support for Ukraine and the U.S. Defense Industrial Base stands with the following:

  • Co-leading the bipartisan H.R. 7372, the Defending Borders, Defending Democracies Act, legislation to swiftly enact border security improvement measures and provide nearly $50 billion in security assistance to Ukraine, $30 million-plus of which would replenish U.S. domestic defense industrial capacity.
  • Voted three times to prevent a government shutdown over the last five months to ensure continued operations at the Department of Defense in the face of multi-faceted threats in the Middle East, the Indo-Pacific, and Eastern Europe.
  • Voting three times to pass H.R. 2670, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2024 (Public Law 118-31), annual national security legislation to authorize defense funding and safeguard our national security. As a House Armed Services Committee member, Congressman Davis secured 11 amendments to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 NDAA to streamline the procurement of advanced weapons systems and improve the quality of life for servicemembers.
