Senators Stand for Eielson

 

Yesterday, Senators Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich co–sponsored an amendment that would prohibit the move of the F–16s from Eielson Air Force Base until 2014.
 
The Senators' bill would delay any sort of structure movement until the National Commission for the Structure of the Air Force, (which was set up in the National Defense Authorization Act) reports on its findings.
 
The year delay may be critical for Alaska's military readiness, military families, and the entire Fairbanks community.
