The U.S. Senate recently passed a Federal appropriations bill that, if confirmed by the House, will grant more than $83 million for military construction projects in Mississippi; about $48.9 million of that will go to the Columbus Air Force Base. Other funds will go to other Mississippi bases and to the Veterans Administration.
“I’ve worked with my colleagues on the committee to support projects to improve the readiness and operational efficiency of active duty and reserve bases in Mississippi,” Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) said. “These Mississippi projects and support for veterans will, I believe, fare well as the Senate and House work toward a single bill that can be signed into law.”
Local funding in the bill:
$30 million to construct a T-7A Based Training System Facility at Columbus Air Force Base.
$9.5 million to construct a T-7A Unit Maintenance Training Facility at Columbus Air Force Base.
$4.6 million to construct a T-7A Egress Shop at Columbus Air Force Base.
$4.85 million to construct a T-7A Hush House Pad at Columbus Air Force Base.
