BRAC Tackles Environmental Issues


Several NAID/ADC members, including Treasurer Miki Schneider, testified this week before the BRAC Commission about environmental issues.

They all spoke about the need to improve the federal process for cleaning up contaminated property so that BRAC communities can get their redevelopment efforts under way more quickly.

A separate panel of federal officials spent most its time fielding questions about DODs estimates of the cost to clean up bases recommended for closure.

Also this week, the Pentagon released its proposed changes to the rules governing property disposal for BRAC 2005.
