A defense bill was passed today

(WASHINGTON)— Rep. Rick Larsen included several provisions in a bill passed today setting policy for the Department of Defense.  Larsen, a member of the House Armed Services Committee which wrote the bill, included measures that support the Northwest economy and improve the national defense.  The bill includes language that Larsen introduced to help small- and medium-sized businesses secure government contracts.  The language will lower costs and increase funding for Procurement Technical Assistance Centers (PTACs) which help businesses meet requirements for government contracts.  The PTAC in Washington state has helped more than 2,200 businesses secure $222 million in government contracts and subcontracts since 2011, creating or retaining thousands of jobs.  The defense bill also includes funding for several defense programs in Northwest Washington.
