Letter to the Hon. Adam Smith, Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, the Hon. Mac Thornberry, Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, the Hon. Peter Visclosky, Chairman of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, and the Hon. Ken Calvert, Ranking Member of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee - Joint Strike Fighter Caucus Announces Record Support for F-35

Mar. 17, 2020

Dear Chairmen and Ranking Members: As you consider the Fiscal Year 2021 defense authorization and appropriations bills, we strongly urge your continued support for the F-35 Lightning II program. As you well know, our adversaries continue to advance surface-to-air missile systems and develop their own stealth fighters. It is essential that we continue to increase production of our nation's only 5th generation stealth fighter in order to ensure the United States maintains air dominance and to further reduce overall program costs. The F-35 is the most advanced fighter in the world and is exceeding operational expectations. The three U.S. Services and our allies are now flying more than 500 aircraft at 23 locations around the world. The program is beginning to show maturity and warrants continued support. In fact, as global threats continue to rise, the Department of Defense's (DoD) Fiscal Year 2021 budget request, which includes funding for 79 F-35s (48 F-35As, 10 F-35Bs and 21 F-35Cs) - 19 less than Congress appropriated in Fiscal Year 2020 - leaves the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps with a capability gap that 4th Generation, or legacy, aircraft cannot fulfill. To reach the minimum 50% ratio of 5th Generation and 4th Generation fighters in the timeframe required to meet the threat, the U.S. must acquire F-35s in much larger quantities. Not only does the F-35 program deliver air superiority for the United States and its key allies, it also bolsters our domestic economy by supporting more than 1,800 suppliers and more than 254,000 direct and indirect jobs across the country. Therefore, we are requesting your support for a total of 98 F-35 aircraft in the Fiscal Year 2021 defense authorization and appropriations bills, which is an increase of 19 aircraft over the President's budget request. This request supports the Air Force and Navy Unfunded Requirements. It is vitally important for Congress to provide authorization and funding for 60 F-35As (+12), 12 F-35Bs (+2), and 26 F-35Cs (+5) in Fiscal Year 2021. This increase in procurement will restore previously planned F-35 production rates negatively impacted by the sequestration era budget caps resulting from the Budget Control Act. Additional funding is needed to address readiness, enhance aircraft availability, and most importantly accelerate compliance with the DoD 80% Mission Capable Mandate. Specifically, additional funding is needed for spare parts and depot level repair capability to meet the required availability rates and accelerate the stand-up of mandated, organic government repair capabilities. In addition, adequate investments in the Reliability and Maintainability Improvement Program will not only increase readiness but also bring costs down for years to come over the life of the aircraft. Lastly, we believe a long-term, outcome-based sustainment contract will guarantee performance metrics at a fixed-price -- a win-win for our men and women in uniform and the American taxpayers. We also urge you to fully fund the President's budget request for modernization efforts, known as Continuous Capability Development and Delivery (C2D2), and as funds are available, accelerate integration of the Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) on to the F-35. C2D2 is critical to meeting the evolving threat in the mid-2020s and into the 2030s. Full funding is needed for the delivery of new weapons and critical capabilities necessary to keep the F-35 ahead of our adversaries. F-35 modernization is crucial for 4th generation aircraft systems, which are increasingly vulnerable and reliant on 5th generation production. The F-35 aircraft costs have come down more than 70 percent since the procurement of the first production aircraft more than 13 years ago; in fact, in Fiscal Year 2020, an F-35A costs $77.9 million. To maintain these costs savings and to ensure future air dominance, it is critical that we increase F-35 production and provide the necessary program investments in the upcoming defense authorization and appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 2021. Thank you for your continued support of the F-35 program and for your leadership.

Two Murphy Amendments Unanimously Adopted in Surprise Billing Markup

Feb. 11, 2020

Congressman Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) issued the following statement after two of his amendments were unanimously adopted during a markup of H.R. 5800 in the House Committee on Education and Labor. "There is bipartisan agreement that surprise billing is a major problem for patients and families across America. It desperately needs to be addressed. While I'm glad we discussed the best path forward to alleviate the problems of surprise billing, the legislation reported out of the committee today is not the right solution to this problem," said Murphy. "Patients should not be caught in the middle of disputes between insurers and providers. Yet at the same time, the American process of negotiation should be respected. Placing a cap on when negotiations can and can't occur leads to government price controls, which would give insurance companies a massive and unfair advantage over those who provide care to their patients. "Though I could not support the bill in its entirety, I was glad to improve it with two amendments that were adopted unanimously. As a physician, I will continue to utilize my expertise on these issues to lower the cost of healthcare and increase patient access to provide Americans with the greatest treatments possible."
