TODAY SHE TOURED THE ROME LABS AND THE DEFENSE FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING SERVICES TO DISCUSS THEIR CORE MISSION, UPCOMING PROJECTS AND HOW THEY’RE ADVANCING IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.I THINK THE MISSION AND THE EXPANSION OF THE ISSUES THAT THE ROME LABS ARE AT THE FOREFRONT OF IS VERY IMPORTANT TO OUR WARFIGHTERS. TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE MOST STATE OF THE ART TECHNOLOGY TO BE ABLE TO DO CUTTING EDGE RESEARCH, TO BE ABLE TO COLLABORATE WITH PRIVATE SECTORS EFFECTIVELY, IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 3 WINNING AND LOSING AND IS THE DIFFERENCE IN OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. 3 SENATOR GILLIBRAND IS WORKING WITH DFAS TO SEE HOW WE CAN CONTINUE TO PROTECT LOCAL JOBS. AS DFAS CONTINUES TO EXPAND IT’S IMPORTANT TO ASSESS WHAT CAN BE DONE TO MEET THEIR NEEDS. AS YOU KNOW, SENATOR SCHUMER AND I HAVE BEEN AGGRESSIVE IN GETTING LANGUAGE OUT OF THE DEFENSE BILL THAT WOULD UNDERMINE THE JOBS HERE AND UNDERMINE THE DFAS MISSION. WE WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH OUR UNION LEADERS TO MAKE SURE THAT THOSE JOBS ARE PROTECTED AND THAT WE GET THE BENEFIT OF FUTURE MISSIONS THAT COULD ENHANCE AND AUGMENT WHAT UPSTATE WORKERS CAN DO FOR OUR WARFIGHTERS. GILLIBRAND EXPLAINS THAT THESE VISITS HELP DETERMINE EACH FACILITY’S NEEDS AND CAPABILITIES SO THAT THEY CAN DECIDE WHERE TO FOCUS FUNDING. ANYTIME YOU CAN HAVE A UNITED STATES SENATOR VISIT THESE MILITARY INSULATIONS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE THEY ARE THE PEOPLE THAT ARE ADVOCATING FOR FUNDING IN WASHINGTON AND THEY NEED TO UNDERSTAND EXACTLY WHAT’S HAPPENING HERE AND WHY. AND THEN HOW THEY CAN HELP US ON THE FUNDING FRONT. REPORTING IN ROME, JAZZMYN ALLEN EYEWITNESS NEWS 3 ((THOMAS))THE BATTLE OVER NET
