Moran: BRAC Mark Center move must be delayed

The Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) plan that would move 6,400 Defense Department employees to Alexandria's Mark Center is facing another challenge. The Defense Department's Inspector General is looking into traffic problems and environmental issues that could be created by the move, which is mandated by the Base Realignment and Closure process.

Virginia Congressman Jim Moran told Federal News Radio that he's already added language to the Defense Authorization Bill to delay the move. He introduced two provisions:

    * capping parking spaces at the new facility at 1,000
* language requiring that the Inspector General look into the process that allowed the Pentagon to move the new facility without any transportation infrastructure improvements
