Senate approves funding for Army National Guard's Stormville project

WASHINGTON – Federal funding for a new maintenance shop for New York Army National Guard units has made if through the Senate as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2013.

The $24 million will allow for construction of the facility in Stormville which will replace the current facilities at Camp Smith in the Town of Cortlandt, dating back to the 1940s.

The funding will support construction of a specifically designed Combined Support Maintenance Shop facility that will include vehicle maintenance bays to maintain over 1,700 wheeled and tracked vehicles from throughout the New York Army National Guard, including the 42nd Infantry Division, a Combat Aviation Brigade, the 153rd Troop Command, and 369th Sustainment Brigade.

The Senate bill will now be reconciled with the House version, and pass the full Congress before being sent to the president for signature.
