Congressman Andy Harris

Representing the First District of Maryland

Defense and Foreign Affairs

The primary duty of our government is to protect the American people from all enemies, foreign and domestic. In the era of global terrorism and nuclear weaponry, strengthening our military and intelligence communities is the key to ensuring our nation’s safety. As a veteran, I value the hard work and sacrifices our servicemen and women make to protect our country, but I also understand that the use of military force is not something that should be taken lightly.

The safety of Americans should be our government’s top priority, and as a member of the Appropriations Committee, I believe Congress is obligated to provide our military with all of the tools they need to protect the American people.
