WBFO, AM 970 News

The Air National Guard unit at the Niagara Falls Air Base would be funded for another year under a defense authorization bill passed by the House on Friday.

The bill, however, faces significant challenges in the Senate and from the president. As proposed, the bill exceeds a set budget cap and promoted projects that the Pentagon opposes.

The Senate will begin parsing the bill next week.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
