|Subject:||[CPEO-IRF] Process for adding to the list|
This article does a good job of explaining today's actions/potential
actions by the Base Realignment and Closure Commission. Today
commissioners are deciding whether to add bases to the list of possible
closures, not voting to close them.|
Remember, as I have written before. Some of the 11 bases being addressed today - such as Maine's Brunswick Naval Air Station - stand alone in the review, while others - such as the Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard - are being considered as alternatives to installations on the Pentagon's list.
Bases Could Be Added to Closure List By LIZ SIDOTI Associated Press/San Francisco Chronicle July 19, 2005
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Military bases in 11 states and the nation's capital could be added to the Pentagon's list of proposed closures and downsizings but any such changes would be preliminary, the chairman of the commission reviewing the plan said Tuesday.
Before voting on additions, Chairman Anthony Principi cautioned that adding a base to the list "does not necessarily mean that the base will be realigned or closed."
He said that including facilities initially spared from the Pentagon list simply will allow commissioners to thoroughly analyze the usefulness of those bases to the U.S. military — and in a few cases compare them to other facilities already on the list.
