Sen. Moran Questions National Guard Bureau Chief at Senate Appropriations Subcommittee Hearing

Discusses Kansas National Guard Fusion Center and future of cyber defense units

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), member of the Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee, questioned National Guard Bureau (NGB) Chief General Frank Grass, Air National Guard (ANG) Director Lieutenant General Stanley Clarke and Air Force Reserve Chief Lieutenant General James Jackson during a Senate Appropriations Defense Subcommittee hearing on the Reserve Components this week. For more than two years, Sen. Moran has been working with the Department of Defense (DoD) and NGB to make certain the cyber personnel and capabilities in the Kansas National Guard are not reduced or diminished — with some success in the FY14 and FY15 National Defense Authorization Acts, as well as in the FY15 Defense Appropriations.
