(WASHINGTON, DC)—Congressman Mike Rogers made the following statement today after President Donald Trump announced the release of the Missile Defense Review (MDR) from the Pentagon.

“Missile defense is vital to securing our homeland, our forces abroad and our allies, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future. This Missile Defense Review lays out smart and strategic policies that will guide our missile defenses and posture to counter our adversaries through an increased focus on advanced technology. I am also pleased to see it builds on many of the policies we have supported in the Strategic Forces Subcommittee for the last several years and look forward to continue working with President Trump to implement these policies,” Rogers said.

Rogers previously served as Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee the past two Congresses. Rogers serves as Ranking Member of the House Committee on Homeland Security and a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee.
