Congress divided on future of commissary

from Military Officers Association of America (MOAA)

The House and Senate approved their versions of the defense bill, and they don't see eye to eye on the commissary. Senate lawmakers cut $322 million from the commissary budget. A cut this big will lead to increased prices, reduced operating hours and days of operation, and a reduction in store staff. As Vice Chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Barbara Mikulski, rejected the commissary cut and provided full funding. House lawmakers rejected the cuts and included full funding for the commissary in the budget. MOAA thanks Senator Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., and Mikulski, D-Md., for leading the charge to prevent privatization of commissaries. more
