I am pleased to be here today to testify before the Commission. The Secretary submitted his recommendations to the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission on March 12, 1993. As required by the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990 P.L. lOl-510 I as amended, we have submitted to the Commission a detailed analysis of the Secretarys recommendations and selection pr0cess.lMy statement will focus on some of the key issues we raised in our report. Our review indicated that the Secretary of Defenses March 12, 1993, recommendations and selection process for base closures and realignments were generally sound. We believe Department of Defense DOD estimates of savings are overstated, but still substantial. However, the recommendations and selection process were not without problems and, in some cases, raise questions about the reasonableness of specific recommendations.
