Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Georgia prepares for base closures
Closing list expected to include Ga. 

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
February 21, 2005

The chilling warning is about to go out to communities that are home to
Georgia's 13 military installations: Prepare for your base to be closed.

State officials responsible for monitoring this year's round of base
closings are confident the Pentagon will not deal a devastating blow to
an industry worth $20 billion annually to Georgia.

But the 2005 closure list scheduled for release by May 16 is expected to
equal the total of the previous four rounds combined, and it is unlikely
the state will avoid the chopping block this time, said retired Army
Brigadier Gen. Phil Browning Jr., executive director of the state
Military Affairs Coordinating Committee.

"We'll be competitive, but statistically you've got to be concerned
because of the numbers they are talking about," he said.

At least one and possibly two Georgia facilities could be shuttered,
Browning said, so the Pentagon can slice at least 24 percent of what it
considers excess infrastructure.
