Concerns are being expressed again about the possible move of the aggressor squadron from Eielson air force base to Anchorage.
The Air Force will reportedly go ahead and produce an environmental impact statement on the proposal.
Alaska US senator lisa Murkowski said military leaders appear to be pressing on with the move over Congress' stated objections, and an earlier commitment from Air Force Chief of Staff General Norman Schwartz to not take any action for one year.
The EIS process will include public hearings in Fairbanks, although they haven't been scheduled yet.
The environmental impact statement is not only raising concern with Senator Murkowski, but with Fairbanks North Star Borough Mayor Luke Hopkins as well.
Hopkins, who met with other local officials about Eielson, said Friday he agrees with Murkowski's assessment.
