ADVISORY: NCDP Chair, Veteran and Fmr Asst Sec for Military Affairs to Hold Press Conference on Impact of Senator Tillis’ Rubberstamp of President Trump’s Emergency Declaration
Raleigh – Today, NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin and former Assistant Secretary for Military Affairs for the State of North Carolina and ten-year veteran of the United States Army Jason Cain will hold a press conference on how Senator Tillis’ “Olympic Gold flip flop” on the emergency declaration is now negatively affecting North Carolina and our active-duty servicemembers.
According to a new report from the U.S. Air Force, the loss of funding “poses various national security risks for the U.S. armed forces.” “No state got hit harder than North Carolina” by Senator Tillis’ decision to rubberstamp the president’s emergency declaration, which is now an “$80 million punch to the gut” to Fort Bragg, Seymour Johnson, and Camp Lejuene.
Senator Tillis has been back in Washington, D.C. for two weeks without solving this issue, which is costing North Carolina’s military communities and now creating national security risks for American servicemembers.
WHO: NCDP Chairman Wayne Goodwin;
Former Assistant Secretary for Military Affairs for the State of North Carolina and ten-year veteran of the United States Army Jason Cain
WHEN: 11:00am, Thursday, September 19
