U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions, a senior member of the Armed Services Committee and Chairman of the Strategic Forces Subcommittee, provided a defense update to Anniston today after the Senate adopted, by a vote of 71 to 25, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016. Senator Sessions played a central role in crafting the Senate’s bipartisan defense plan. The Anniston Army Depot is designated to receive over $65 million for additional workload from the Army’s unfunded requirements list. The work includes towed and self-propelled artillery, recovery vehicles, Strykers, and M-113 A-P-Cs.
