The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission continued its hearing on the environmental and economic impact of military base closings. Earlier in the year, the Department of Defense released a list of military bases proposed for closure as an accompaniment to the planned reduction in manpower instituted by the Department of Defense. The department intends to cut U.S. military personnel 25 percent by fiscal year 1996. Concerns were raised by environmental groups concerning the cleanup of toxic and hazardous substances on bases slated to be closed. The commission also sought testimony on the method of land valuation of closed bases, which will affect the local economies of towns surrounding closed bases. close
