Dear Chair McGovern, Ranking Member Cole, and Members of the House Committee on Rules:

On behalf of the undersigned organizations, non-partisan, non-profit government and budget watchdogs, we write in support of several amendments submitted to the Rules Committee for its forthcoming meeting on H.R. 4350, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022. It is our view that each of the following amendments would serve American taxpayers well, by either reducing unnecessary funding in an extremely large and growing defense budget or by requiring additional Congressional oversight of key defense programs and priorities. We hope you will make each of these amendments in order for floor consideration when the House considers H.R. 4350 during the week of September 20.
