Senator Jeff Sessions issues an update on the passage of the National Defense Bill. The legislation protects the needs and requirement of service members and authorizes funding for numerous defense-related programs. And what does the bill mean for Anniston? Anniston will receive more than $92 million dollars in funding for the Army Multi-Purpose Vehicle, and $237 million in funding for M-1 Abrams tanks modifications, and overall funding for Army Land Forces Depot Maintenance of $1 billion. The bill received a strong bipartisan committee vote of 25 to 1.
