MORRIS COUNTY — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) released the following statement after voting in favor of a bipartisan resolution to block President Trump’s national emergency declaration:

“As a veteran, I am deeply concerned with the harm this unwarranted emergency declaration does to our military readiness, military families, and construction projects needed across the country and at Picatinny Arsenal. I supported the bipartisan resolution to keep military construction funds for military missions authorized by Congress and needed by our warfighters.”

The President’s proposal would strip $3.6 billion for military construction projects, including $41 million for the Munitions Disassembly Complex at Picatinny Arsenal, the Joint Center of Excellence for Armaments and Munitions.
