More on Appropriations
The House-passed $369.1 billion Defense Appropriations Bill contains $41.4 million for work on projects that will be done at military bases and by manufacturers located in Georgia’s Second Congressional District, U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop said Wednesday (7/9).
“These projects are important for the defense of the nation,” he said. “But, by bringing a substantial new investment of federal dollars into our area of Georgia, they will also create jobs and help strengthen our area’s economy. This is good for the country, and it’s good for southwest Georgia.”
U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop Tuesday (6/17) sharply criticized a majority on the House Appropriations Committee for rejecting a proposal to address critical needs in military service and homeland defense with funds provided by a temporary delay in a portion of the tax cuts approved this year for America’s wealthiest citizens.
