Do the Guard Get Bonuses or Not?

Last week this was reported
The Pentagon has reneged on its offer to pay a $15,000 bonus to members of the National Guard and Army Reserve who agree to extend their enlistments by six years, according to Sen. Patty Murray (D-Seattle).

So why is the Rocky Mountain News reporting this today?
A veteran Guard member can receive a bonus of up to $15,000 cash for a six-year extension and $7,500 for a three-year extension, depending on the military speciality. New enlistees can receive up to a $10,000 signing bonus for critical skills needed by the Guard.
