Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler and the House Armed Services Committee have approved the FY15 National Defense Authorization Act. One of the key provisions impacting our national security and Missourians is the support for an A-10 warthog fleet. The department of defense proposed the divestment of the A-10 airframe but this legislation includes an amendment that Congresswoman Hartzler co-sponsored, that will fully fund the maintenance, operation, and upgrading of the fleet. Hartzler told us this is an important issue here at the lake and she considered residents input.
The FY15 NDAA will now go before the full house for a vote.
