        Request for Cosponsor(s)

Dear Colleague,


This week, Congressman Veasey and I are introducing a resolution to acknowledge the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter’s vital importance to our national security and to encourage Congress’ continued support for the program.


We must maintain air superiority in order to preserve global security and stability. Yet, in the past two decades, the U.S. Air Force fighter inventory was cut in half and most current Air Force fighter aircraft are more than 25 years old.


The National Security Strategy emphasizes building a more lethal force and strengthening alliances, and we cannot afford to risk the security of America or its allies by allowing this program to fall short of its mission.


I hope you’ll join us and become an original cosponsor for this important resolution. 


Current original cosponsors: Reps. Veasey, Cole, Larson, Gosar, Biggs, Gaetz, Thompson (PA), Curtis (UT), Byrne, Jones (NC).


If you have any questions or would like to be an original co-sponsor, please contact Jennifer Lauterbach in my office at by COB Thursday.
