Weekly Wrap Up
We bring this second week of May (already?) to a close with a weekly wrap up, our new Friday feature summarizing everything that's happened this week and a preview of what to expect next week.
What we've been up to....
-On Monday, NGAUS started a blog. Obviously. (Thanks for reading!)
-On Tuesday, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense (HAC-D) passed the Defense Appropriations bill, which includes increased funding for the National Guard.
-On Wednesday, we sent a letter to the House and Senate defense committee regarding Army National Guard Abrams tanks.
-On Thursday morning at 2am (way past our bedtime), the House Armed Services Committee passed the FY13 National Defense Authorization (NDAA), which reverses the proposed cuts to the Air Guard. NGAUS applauded the move, and the National Governors Association also expressed approval.
