WASHINGTON_A military funding bill that would provide millions of dollars for construction projects in southwest Oklahoma has been blocked by Democrats in the U.S. Senate.
The bill would allocate $56 million for phase two or the reception barracks complex at Fort Sill, and an additional $13.4 million for a training support facility. It also included $18 million for a 120-room dormitory at Altus Air Force base, and
$10.4 million for a fuel cell maintenance hangar. It also includes more than $160 billion in funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs.
