Casey Supported Bill to Help Military Passes Senate

Legislation Will Fund Facilities in PA

WASHINGTON, DC U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) this week praised the passage of a bill he supported to fund military facilities in Pennsylvania. Facilities in New Cumberland, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will together receive more than $67 million for much needed improvements.

“Military facilities keep local economies strong,” said Senator Casey. “Supporting these facilities helps the military remain prepared to meet the needs of the nation.”

The bill provides over $13 million for a new Navy Reserve Center in Pittsburgh, $8 million for improvements to the Defense Logistics Agency’s (DLA’s) Defense Personnel Support Center in Philadelphia and $56 million for construction and improvements to DLA’s distribution center in New Cumberland.

Senator Casey will work to ensure these projects remain in the final version of the bill that is sent to the President.
