After 32 years, one chapter comes to a close – 102.3 KRMG

Joining the House in voting for a yearly defense policy bill by a broad bipartisan margin, the Senate dared President Donald Trump on Friday to veto the plan, which the President opposes in part because it allows the Pentagon to change the names of military bases named after Confederate soldiers.
