National Defense Bill: Anniston
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.
