BRAC fight may not be over, DoD official says By Andy Medici Federal Times May 23, 2012The Defense Department is still pushing for two more rounds of base realignments and closures despite opposition from Congress, according to a senior Pentagon official.
Dorothy Robyn, deputy undersecretary of defense for installations and environment, said it's typical for Congress to reject DoD requests for a BRAC on the first try. The Defense Department requested in its fiscal 2013 budget two new rounds of base closures - one in 2013 and one in 2015.
While Robyn would not speculate about whether the Defense Department plans to request the BRAC rounds again in the 2014 budget if it's rejected in its 2013 budget request, she said she would be surprised if DoD didn't continue to ask for it.
