Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky's senior U.S. Senator is calling on lawmakers to pass the Defense Authorization Act.

Mitch McConnell spoke today on the Senate floor. He talked about the impact on Hardin County if Fort Knox lost more funding.

McConnell says it would mean a $2 billion hit to the area.

"Kentuckians and Americans know that supporting our troops is never a waste of time," McConnell said. "They know that ensuring the military has the tools it needs isn't a game."

The bill deals with funding for the Department of Defense and the Department of Energy.
