Coalition sends letter to Senate Military Family Caucus Members urging support for critical amendments
from Save Our Benefit
As a member of the Senate Military Family Caucus, we are counting on your leadership to help roll back multiple attacks on the commissary benefit proposed by the Pentagon and passed by the Senate Armed Services Committee in the Committee's version of the FY16 National Defense Authorization Act. We strongly urge your support of: the Inhofe-Mikulski amendment (#1728), requiring a report assessing the viability of privatizing the commissary system before implementing any changes; the Mikulski amendment (#2009), restoring the $322 million in cuts from the commissary program; and the Mikulski amendment (#1886), striking language allowing the Secretary of Defense to raise commissary prices at his discretion.
