New bill would give renewed life to Air Base

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.
