Landrieu: $20M in Fed Funds for Ft. Polk School Wonderful News for Our Military Families

July 20, 2012

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today issued the following statement on the announcement that $20 million in federal funds will be used to build a new South Polk Elementary School to serve children of military families stationed at Fort Polk. These funds are part of $250 million in federal funds that the U.S. Congress appropriated in 2011 to repair or replace schools on military bases. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Sen. Landrieu strongly supported this funding.

"Today's announcement that $20 million in federal funds will build a new school at Fort Polk is wonderful news for our soldiers and their families. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I consistently advocate for funding to improve the quality of life of our military families, including quality educational opportunities. Fort Polk serves Louisiana and our nation with great distinction - the children of our soldiers deserve every chance for success including the best education possible. Throughout this process I have worked to bring this funding to Ft. Polk and I will continue to work with all involved stakeholders to ensure this project is a success," Sen. Landrieu said.
