Sen. Jerry Moran said this past weekend that there is evidence of Congress being able to work together. He referred to the annual cooperation on passage of a bipartisan National Defense Authorization Act. "Increasing the pay for Soldiers at Fort Riley and around the country 2.7%."
Moran said they gained approval for a monument on the national mall honoring those who served in the War on Terror. "That's a piece of legislation that I was a sponsor of and glad to see it included in NDAA."
The Senator's priorities included in the measure include conducting a study on military spouse employment, approval of construction of a new daycare facility on Fort Leavenworth, expansion and improvement of the Kansas National Guard's Joint Forces Headquarters building, and authorizing establishment of the independent Afghanistan War Commission to examine the full scope of the war.
