Congressman Evans Amendment Included and Passed in NDAA

July 18, 2017
Press Release

I wanted to share with you that my amendment was passed in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). This is especially timely as my amendment would require the President to send a report to Congress about ANY cooperation between the U.S. and Russia in Syria. 

As you know, the situation in Syria is dire, and therefore we must ensure a clear strategy is spelled out regarding American engagement set forth by this Administration. As Members of Congress this is our moment too. Article I Section I in the Constitution grants us this power. And right now we need to harness the power of this process to ensure accountability and transparency for Pennsylvanians and the American people.
