President Clinton and members of the White House Cabinet spoke in a news conference to announce the president’s decision to pass the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission’s recommendations on U.S. military bases to close on to Congress. The commission submitted its recommendations to the president two days earlier, after months of hearings on the subject. The base closure commission’s recommendations were based on the original list of military bases slated for closure by the Department of Defense and its own investigations into military base costs and capabilities. The speakers in the news conference discussed the government’s plans for aiding the communities surrounding closed bases and for remodeling the closed bases for business or community use. President Clinton left the news conference while other Cabinet members rose to speak on how their departments were affected by the base closings. close
