BRAC Dead For Now

Not only will there not be a new base closure round in the immediate future, but the Pentagon will not be permitted to plan for one.

The House Armed Services Committee could have simply ignored DOD’s request for BRAC rounds in 2013 and 2015 - as the Readiness Subcommittee did when it marked up its portion of the fiscal 2013 defense authorization bill on April 27.

But instead -  it passed an amendment precluding the department from using FY 2013 appropriations “to propose, plan for or execute an additional BRAC round.”
