WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- The House Armed Services Committee adopted an amendment that protects A-10s from being divested as proposed in the President's 2015 budget. U.S. Congresswoman Candice Miller from Michigan says that she hears regularly from troops engaged in combat about the importance of the A-10.

"They all agree that the A-10 'Warthog' is the most reliable close air support aircraft," says Miller.

The authorization still needs to be approved by the full House and Senate.
