US Congress Approves Space Force

Washington: (HRNW) The US Senate approved a massive defense spending bill on Tuesday, sending Donald Trump a $738 billion package that creates a new space force, fulfilling a presidential priority, and seeks to curb Russia’s sprawling energy ambitions.
The National Defense Authorization Act, which passed 86 to eight, marks a jump from the $716 billion in funding authorized last year. It will go to fund a wide range of military activities, from warfighting in Afghanistan and shipbuilding to boosting intelligence efforts against Russia and expanding air fleets including drones. The NDAA also includes a 3.1 percent raise for members of the military, their highest in a decade.
