The U.S. military is getting an increase in funding if legislation passes muster in the Senate.


The House of Representatives passed a $583.7 billion dollar appropriations bill for military operations on Wednesday.


Congressman John Moolenaar, who voted for the increase, says it includes a 2.1 percent pay increase for U.S. troops.


He adds the legislation gives troops the equipment they need to win on the battlefield and gives them and their families a well-deserved pay raise.
