Defense/Strengthening National Security

Sen. Franken in Afghanistan

Today we face a 21st century international security environment with new challenges and threats: terrorism and nuclear proliferation, the prevalence of unconventional warfare, and more. Minnesotans need a national defense that’s suited to the multitude of challenges we face today. We need a defense budget that reflects our real national security priorities, not wasteful parochial interests or bloated programs. Minnesota has a very important role to play in the nation's defense, whether it's our men and women serving in uniform, the research and development being done by our educational institutions, or our businesses providing vital defense equipment, ensuring responsible defense funding will enable Minnesota to continue to play an important role.
