Rep. Mike Turner is not happy about the National Defense Authorization Act introduced by House Democrats, calling it “a political show of legislative malpractice.”

In a statement, the Dayton Republican, who opposed the bill during a committee vote last week, said the bill “undermines our national security, weakens our defenses, and emboldens our adversaries to challenge us.

Turner serves as the Ranking Member on the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Strategic Forces.
