Task force tries to keep bases open

The Federal Base Realignment and Closure commission will be making decisions again about which military bases should be closed or moved. State Senator Bill Avery says work is underway now to make improvements at the bases, so they stay off the Government’s closure list.
One major project the Nebraska BRAC task force is looking at, is the $20 million needed to fix the levee system surrounding the Nebraska National Guard operations at the Lincoln Airport.
Avery says once your base gets on the Federal list, it’s nearly impossible to get it changed.
