Lawmakers Speak Out Against Proposed Guard Cuts
WASHINGTON, D.C. (CBS 2/FOX 28) -- Two of Iowa's top lawmakers spoke out today against recently proposed cuts to Iowa's National Guard.
Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) called the Pentagon's proposed cuts "misguided" and says that the Defense Department needs to look to other money-saving measures, including defense projects overseas.
Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) also said the idea of making cuts to the National Guard is not a new idea and that he can see a bipartisan effort against the proposed cuts.
