Stars and Stripes: Senate passes defense bill without funding for Stars and Stripes

Stars and Stripes: Senate passes defense bill without funding for Stars and Stripes. “Funding for Stars and Stripes was not included in the Senate’s version of the 2021 National Defense Authorization Act passed Thursday, setting up deliberations with House members about the future of the news organization. The Senate’s version of the NDAA, which passed 86-14, contains no language reversing the Pentagon’s February request to strip the roughly $15.5 million annual subsidy that the editorially independent news organization receives.”
