Congressman Carney introduces a bill to modernize the Delaware National Guard's aircraft fleet.

The legislation would allow the Air Force to modernize C-130H aircraft in a fiscally responsible manner that doesn't jeopardize national security.

The C-130H is the military's primary combat delivery aircraft that also provides humanitarian assistance around the globe.

But Carney says the Delaware National Guard's fleet of C-130H planes will be inoperable by 2020. If that happens, Carney predicts an end to DNG's C-130H flying missions and job losses.
