A proposed $37 billion amendment to the defense spending bill would include $1.4 billion in inflation-related bonuses, commissary support and more housing for service members feeling the adverse effects of inflation.

The provision was introduced by Rep. Jared Golden, D-Maine. It also would provide an additional $3.5 million for military construction and $2.5 billion for fuel price increases. Another personnel-related provision calls for $1.7 billion in facilities sustainment, restoration, and modernization, in support of better quality of life.
