Jones: Bill blocks OLF in area By JENNIFER PREYSS Elizabeth City Daily Advance (NC) June 17, 2009US Rep. Walter Jones says an amendment he attached to a defense spending bill this week will = if the legislation is adopted by the full House and Senate and signed into law by President Obama = successfully block the US Navy from building a jet landing field in two area counties.
The amendment to the $672 billion National Defense Authorization Act, which Jones, R-N.C., introduced on Wednesday, strips the Navy secretary of the ability to build an outlying landing field in either Camden or Gates counties.
Specifically, Jones' amendment bars the Navy from "consider(ing) the establishment of, or purchas(ing) land, construct(ing) facilities, implement(ing) bird management plans, or conduct(ing) any other activities that would facilitate the establishment of an OLF at either of the proposed sites in North Carolina: Sandbanks or Hale's Lake."
