FILE - In this March 14, 2014, file photo, House Armed Services Committee Chairman Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon, R-Calif., smiles on Capitol Hill in Washington. Congress is saying “not so fast” to a Pentagon proposal to cut subsidies to military commissaries where service members and their families shop at a reduced cost, as well as other proposed changes to benefits. McKeon said the legislation rejects Pentagon proposals "that would have increased out-of-pocket costs for military families, including the elimination of most TRICARE plans, and reduction of housing allowances and commissary benefits."
