      DOD: Military finalizing papers for special consideration in
environmental laws 
      Natalie M. Henry, Greenwire staff writer

      The U.S. Navy has confirmed that the military is seeking special
consideration from environmental laws for training, military readiness and
national security purposes. The request is currently being finalized by the
Defense Department and will be released to the public when it is sent to
Congress in the near future. 

      Navy spokesman Lt. Doug Spencer said the military is attempting to work
on a "fairly short timeline." The issue is not limited to environmental
encroachment but overall encroachment on all the armed services.
