Congresswoman Martha Roby

Representing the 2nd District of Alabama

Defense and National Security

I am proud to serve a congressional district that is home to two of our nation’s finest military installations. I know the importance of providing the brave men and women of our military with the best resources possible to ensure they are fit for whatever challenges they may face. I will continue to fight for sufficient military funding to secure the security of our nation.

I have the distinct honor of sitting on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, which is responsible for crafting military spending plans. I take this responsibility very seriously, and I will always work to ensure that Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base and Ft. Rucker remain strong components in our national defense infrastructure.

Each year I have served in Congress I have opposed proposals that drastically and unfairly cut military spending, including pay that members of the armed services and their families depend on. Instead, I have worked with my colleagues to build support for strong military funding that properly provides for those who serve and have served in uniform.
