Missouri’s leading Congressman on defense issues lists the things Missouri gets in the new National Defense Authorization Bill. Congressman Ike Skelton says the bill contains about $77-Million for Missouri’s major military bases. The final version includes about $45-Million to replace 160 family housing units and build a new child development center at Whiteman Air Force Base. Fort Leonard Wood will get $32-Million for a new training facility for response to weapons of mass destruction, for a new training complex on countering mines, a kennel for mine-detecting dogs and to upgrade the firing range and classroom facility.
