Army Futures Command
The state of Texas has been given the opportunity of a lifetime with the development of the Army Futures Command (AFC). In total, AFC anticipates spending $32.4 billion in 2019 alone, providing another 500 new jobs in the area. In October of 2018, AFC launched operations in Austin at the University of Texas Systems Headquarters. Rep. Cyrier worked closely with AFC and leadership in both chambers this session to secure a state investment of $50 million. This funding will secure an innovative proving ground at the RELLIS Campus at Texas A&M. With AFC’s partnership with the University of Texas and Texas A&M University along with AFC’s ongoing budget, the state stands to gain tremendously from their presence.
