Tester Votes to Confirm Trump's Pick to Lead the Air Force

(U.S. Senate) – U.S. Senator Jon Tester issued the following statement after voting to confirm Heather Wilson to become the Secretary of the Air Force:

“Keeping our country safe is my top priority and through the folks at Malmstrom and the Montana Air National Guard, Montana plays a critical role in protecting our freedoms. I look forward to working with Secretary Wilson to ensure our Air Force has the resources and leaders it needs to keep Montana and America safe.”

Tester met with Secretary Wilson in April and discussed Montana priorities like modernizing the C-130s, replacing outdated helicopters at Malmstrom, and strengthening America’s intercontinental ballistic missile defense systems.
