The Associated Press reports that “Congress is saying ‘not so fast’ to a Pentagon proposal to cut subsidies to military commissaries where service members and their families shop at a reduced cost, as well as other proposed changes to benefits.”  

“The House Armed Services Committee unveiled its draft legislation Tuesday, and Republicans and Democrats on the military personnel subcommittee are expected to approve it Wednesday. It’s one of the initial steps as Congress begins crafting its annual defense policy bill.”
