Graves Talks About Recently-Passed Defense Bill

Northern Missouri Congressman Sam Graves says he’s pleased with the Defense Authorization bill approved by Congress and signed into law by President Biden.

The bill provides a 5-percent pay hike for military personnel and pays for improvements to military housing, as well as education and childcare facilities.

Yet, Graves says it doesn’t check all the boxes. . .

Graves says the Defense bill provides funding for the current C-130 fleet based at the 139th Airlift Wing at St. Joseph’s Rosecrans Memorial Airport.
