Commission members answered reporters' questions about the environmental and economic impact of the proposed closures shortly before continuing a hearing on the subject. The commission has been conducting a series of hearings on the list of proposed military base closings announced by the Department of Defense earlier in the year. The closings accompany a planned 25 percent reduction in manpower of the Department of Defense, being made because of the changing global military situation following the end of the Cold War and budget constraints. The commission recently ended a series of regional hearings concerning the local economic and environmental impact of base closings on the areas surrounding the closed bases. close
