Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (IA-01) released the following statement after supporting a waiver for retired Army General Lloyd Austin to serve as Defense Secretary. This waiver was required for him to serve in the Administration, as the General served in uniform within the last seven years.

“While I have concerns about establishing a regular pattern of offering these waivers, I voted in favor of Secretary-Designate Austin’s waiver request to serve as the head of the Department of Defense. After discussions with key national security officials, I believe he is the best candidate for the job and will lead the Pentagon and our Armed Services with distinction.”
