Annual Defense Spending Bill Passed

A newly passed defense spending bill is expected to strengthen Hill Air Force Base. Representative Rob Bishop says that the funding levels in H.R. 2810 are a vast improvement over recent years and will help address shortfalls that plagued the military under the Obama Administration. “Language contained in the bill also means Utah and Hill Air Force Base will continue in its critical role as a player in our national defense,” shares Bishop. “Full funding for the F-35 program and various construction projects at Hill secures the Base as the home of 5th generation fighters for a long time to come.” Bishop also says this directly enhances operations at the Ogden Air Logistics Complex and will also provide for construction of new facilities at Hill Air Force Base.
