ATLANTA,GA– May 20, 16– The U.S. House of Representatives passed a defense authorization bill this week that includes nearly $155 million for four projects at Fort Gordon. Three of the projects related to Fort Gordon’s role as the Army’s center of cybersecurity.
The Pentagon requested the $90 million for the CYBER Protection Team Operations Facility. In addition to Fort Gordon, the appropriations bill contains money for modernizing and replacing aging hangars at Hunter Army Airfield, a training range at Fort Stewart, a drone facility at Fort Benning and a helicopter maintenance hangar at Moody Air Force Base.
Now the Senate must agree with the House totals or the two chambers will have to negotiate a compromise to pass something for the president to sign.
