2 Indiana projects halted by border wall funding shiftSeptember 9, 2019
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana's two Republican U.S. senators are supporting the Trump administration move that puts two military projects in the state on hold in the shift of Pentagon funding toward U.S.-Mexico border wall construction.
The Pentagon's list of $3.6 billion in project cuts includes $16 million for a railcar holding area at Crane Army Ammunition Plant near Bloomington and an $8 million small arms range for the Air National Guard in Terre Haute.
WFIU-FM reports Sen. Mike Braun says President Donald Trump's decision is necessary because the U.S.-Mexican border "has no order to it."
Sen. Todd Young's office says he'll work to restore project funding as soon as possible.
Pentagon officials say 127 construction projects are being "deferred" and not cancelled, although there's no guarantee Congress will approve money to revive them.
