Inhofe, Mikulski praise passage of amendment protecting commissary benefits
"Today Congress stood in strong bipartisan support of protecting commissary benefits for our nation's service members, their families and our veterans," Inhofe said. "The support of more than 40 outside organizations made the passage of this amendment possible as they provided a face to the millions who depend on this benefit," added Inhofe. "We took a step forward to protect America's military families today," Mikulski said. "I'm all for eliminating pentagon waste, but no money is wasted at a commissary. In fact, just the opposite happens. Commissaries feed our troops. They help military families stretch their budgets, and they provide jobs to military spouses, children old enough to work and military retirees. And commissaries are the military's most popular earned benefit."
