Congress looks to make local military housing viable for service members

NORFOLK, Va. – — This week Rep. Jen Kiggans (R-Virginia) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Alabama) toured local military installations, including NAS Oceana, military housing in Norfolk as well as Newport News Shipbuilding.

Rogers is chair of the House Armed Services Committee, which Kiggans also sits on.

Kiggans is pushing for more private military housing and says she has concerns about Oceana, where less than 50-percent of on-base housing is livable.
