According to a Tiahrt web page
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. House of Representatives Tuesday passed a $377.6 billion defense appropriations bill that contains approximately $8.9 billion in defense projects that provide work for south central Kansas workers. U.S. Representative Todd Tiahrt (R-Goddard), a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense, secured $52.6 million in additional funding for area companies.
“After fighting hard to keep the federal government’s spending down with the passage of a sensible budget, I am honored to bring federal dollars back to Kansas,” said Tiahrt. “We have the best workers in the nation and I am pleased the House passed a bipartisan defense spending bill that addresses the needs of our country while our brave men and women are protecting our homeland.”
