Moments ago, Congressman Will Hurd voted against a Motion to Recommit on H.R. 1735 - the National Defense Authorization Act of 2016. 

The Motion to Recommit sought to provide a 2.3% pay increase for fiscal year 2016 for members of the uniformed services.  Additionally, the Motion would ensure that the Secretary of Defense take all steps necessary to guarantee members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps continue to receive compensation for their service in defense of the United States despite any government shutdown after September 30, 2015.  

Following is a statement from Gallego for Congress spokesman Anthony Gutierrez:

"Not only does Congressman Hurd oppose a pay raise for our country's service members - he doesn't even want to guarantee them a paycheck in the event of a government shutdown. 

The men and women who put their lives on the line for our country deserve far better than the blatant disrespect they're getting from Rep. Hurd."
