Tillis, Colleagues Call For Termination of DoD Contracts Failing To Provide Adequate Housing Rights for Military Families

Today, U.S. Senators Thom Tillis (R-Cornelius, NC), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Mazie Hirono (D-HI), and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff (D-GA) sent a letter to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, calling on him to use all tools and authorities at his disposal to protect military families from private housing contractors that are not providing protections guaranteed by the military tenant’s bill of rights. Despite requirements in the fiscal year (FY) 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, five private military housing providers are still failing to implement key rights for military families.
