After providing “lethal aid” to Ukraine, the Securing American Acquisitions, Readiness and Military Stockpiles Act was recently introduced in the Senate. The bill would give the Department of Defense enhanced procurement authorities to refill American defense stockpiles quickly after the President provides aid to an ally or partner attacked by a foreign adversary.
Sen. Thom Tillis of North Carolina was one of the bill’s cosponsors.
“It is crucial that the United States support our allies as we have done with Ukraine, and it is equally important that we refill our own defense stockpiles,” said Senator Tillis. “I am proud to support this commonsense legislation to ensure our nation is protected and ready to defend itself if necessary.”
