Delegate wants state to takeover navy base in Pendleton County, WV By Mandi Cardosi West Virginia State Journal August 12, 2015 The U.S. Navy’s Sugar Grove base is set to close Sept. 30, and one WV delegate is asking for the state to step in. The facility was awarded to the West Virginia Division of Corrections by the United States General Services Administration in early May 2015. However, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin has not made a decision to authorize the DOC to accept the base. If Tomblin does not authorize the acceptance, it is unclear what will happen to the facility. Delegate Isaac Sponaugle, D-Pendleton, said the base could be a huge opportunity not only for the state but also for the county he represents, where the facility is located. “I am deeply troubled over the inaction thus far by the Governor to authorize the State of West Virginia to accept title to the base,” he said in a press release. “Literally hundreds of jobs and an entire county have been placed in limbo for months waiting on him to approve the transaction. It would be unprecedented in the history of the General Services Administration agency for any state to turn down property that has been awarded to it.” … For the entire article, see http://www.statejournal.com/story/29770876/delegate-wants-state-to-takeover-navy-base-in-pendleton-county -- Lenny Siegel Executive Director, Center for Public Environmental Oversight a project of the Pacific Studies Center 278-A Hope Street Mountain View, CA 94041 Voice: 650-961-8918 or 650-969-1545 Fax: 650-961-8918 LSiegel@cpeo.org http://www.cpeo.org _______________________________________________ Military mailing list Military@lists.cpeo.org http://lists.cpeo.org/listinfo.cgi/military-cpeo.org
