VIENNA, Ohio (WYTV) – The air reserve station in Vienna is closer to getting the money it needs for an improvement project.
U.S. Senator Rob Portman announced Thursday that over $9 million has been approved in a bill for military construction, according to a release from Portman’s office.
The release states that the Air Force included the funding in its budget proposal and the Senate has taken the first step in approving that proposal with today’s news.
The money is now part of the Fiscal Year 2016 National Defense Authorization Act.
The current range is outdated and cannot be used for more powerful weapons such as grenade launchers.
