Abstract:

On October 2, 1981, the President announced his decision cancel the M-X Multiple Protective Shelter MPS basing system. The Air Force was, at that time, working to prepare a Final Environmental Impact Statement FEIS for the MPS site selection process. This preliminary FEIS captures the environmental data and analysis in the document that was nearing completion when the President decided to deploy the MX system in a different manner. The Public Finance model presents estimates of the public sector financial impacts of the development of the M-X missile system. The text of this report describes the methodological approach employed in the analysis, as well as the details of the model itself. The public finance analysis methodology used in this environmental technical report was designed to inform the decisionmaker of relative public finance impacts which could occur should the M-X system be deployed under the different alternatives. The level of detail of this methodology is sufficient for supporting the site selection and land withdrawal decision. However, the results should not be interpreted as being sufficient for making all federal, local and state financial decisions which would be necessary should M-X be deployed.
