Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Vieques legislation
According to Defense Environmental Allert (May 9, 2000), the House Armed
Services Committee subcommittee on military installations marked up its
portion of the pending Defense Authorization bill on May 2. The
subcommitee "declined to include" any language governing the transfer of
the Naval Ammunition Depot that occupies the western portion of the
Puerto Rican island of Vieques.

The publication quotes subcommittee chair Joel Hefley (R-Colorado), "in
recognition of the additional readiness and training issues inherent in
this subject, I have elected to defer action until the full committee
meets [this] week." Hefley reportedly didn't want the transfer to
proceed until the Navy was able to resume firing exercises at the
eastern Vieques training range.
