Coalition urges Congress to reject cuts to commissary budget
from Military Times
A coalition of organizations advocating to protect military shopping benefits has sent a letter to leaders of the House and Senate Armed Services committees urging them to reject the Pentagon's proposed cuts to commissary funding. They also asked the committees to reject the legislative changes the Pentagon has requested, which would allow the commissaries to raise prices in order to pay for some operating costs. "The Pentagon's budget cuts will destroy the commissary benefit," the Coalition to Save Our Military Shopping Benefits wrote in an April 16 letter ... Repeatedly, families noted that they wouldn't shop at commissaries if prices rise, which would, in effect end the benefit.
