ABILENE, TX (KTAB/KRBC) – Earlier this month, Rep. Jodey Arrington (TX-19) was able to provide support at Dyess Air Force Base.
Passage of the National Defense Authorization Act secured investments for Dyess Air Force Base, which included $22 million for B-1 hypersonic integration and a moratorium on B-1 retirements for three more years.
The NDAA, which authorized the House with overwhelming bipartisan support, approved significant increases in national defense spending for the second straight year.
The $840 billion to fund the Department of Defense and national security goals was a bipartisan deal in which the house released $27 billion more than the Biden administration had asked for.
Watch Arrington talk about securing $22 million for Dyess Air Force Base and how bipartisanship is achieved when US national security is at stake.
