U.S. Representatives Norma J. Torres (CA-35), Salud Carbajal (CA-24), and Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) announced that their provision to increase federal funding by $5 million to assist the U.S. Air Force Educational Partnership Agreement has passed the U.S. House of Representatives as part of H.R. 2740, the first minibus of fiscal year 2020 appropriations bills.
“I’m proud to have worked with Rep. Torres and Rep. Napolitano to secure this aerospace funding—I know it will make a difference throughout our nation,” said Carbajal.
