Washington, D.C.— Congressman Henry Cuellar (TX-28) secured $115.8 million for Recruit Housing & Training Facilities, a Military Ambulatory Care Center, and F-16 Mission Training Center at the Joint Base San Antonio (JBSA) in the fiscal year 2022 Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies (MILCONVA) Appropriations bill. This funding, an increase of nearly 75% over the FY21 funding, will provide JBSA and the broader military with the resources and facilities to train our Airman, provide optimal care, and increase our military’s readiness and preparedness.
This bill passed the Appropriations Committee and now goes to the House Floor for consideration.
“The people who protect our nation deserve our full support,” said Congressman Cuellar. “This funding will provide JBSA—and the broader military—the necessary equipment and resources to prepare for future challenges and strengthen our overall national security.”
“As a senior Member of the Defense Subcommittee on Appropriations, I am committed to funding projects that continue to be a critical asset to our national defense. I want to thank Appropriations Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, Ranking Member Kay Granger, MILCONVA Subcommittee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and Ranking Member John Carter for supporting our military and Veterans. I also want to thank Congressman Tony Gonzales for helping me secure this critical funding for JBSA.”
