Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Alabama, says he would forego most army promotions. He has blocked army promotions for months over his objections to an unrelated Pentagon coverage that pays for service members’ journey prices to acquire abortion care.

Tuberville instructed reporters on the Capitol on Tuesday that he would quit all promotions besides these for 4 Star generals. Tuberville has been blocking promotions since February leading to a backlog of over 350.

It is a creating story and will probably be up to date.
