Group Charged with Protecting Military Bases Plans Final Meeting


The final meeting of the Oklahoma Military Base Closure Prevention Task Force is scheduled at 9 a.m. Wednesday in Room 412- C in the State Capitol.

Task Force Chairman Rep. David Braddock, D-Altus, said the 16- member panel will review the Oklahoma Base Closure Prevention Task Force Report before it is presented to legislative leaders and the governor for approval.

Braddock said the task force was created to analyze state policies affecting active Department of Defense military facilities in the state.

The report will be the basis for new legislation aimed at saving the state's six military installations from partial or complete closure, Braddock said. Oklahoma is one of only seven states that have not experienced a major base closure.
