The Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs and Border Security convened at Port San Antonio Wednesday to hear public comment on issues ranging from defense manufacturing to military youth readiness.


San Antonio is being talked about as one of the cities competing to win the Boeing 777X airliner manufacturing contract, but local officials aren’t talking.

About 15 locations, along with their home states, are coming up with lush billion-dollar incentive packages.
