Commissary cuts not supported

from NAUS Weekly Update

The House Armed Services Committee version of the fiscal 2016 defense authorization bill that is now taking shape would reject the DoD recommendation to dramatically phase down spending on commissaries. That Administration proposed reduction would have required most commissaries to reduce operating days and hours.

Items currently are sold at cost, with taxpayer dollars paying for overhead and employee wages and benefits. more
