Abstract:

On November 5, 199O, President George Bush signed Public Law 1O1-51O, Title XXIX the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Act of 1990, establishing the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission to ensure a timely independent and fair process for closing and realigning U.S. military installations. This statute required the Secretary of Defense to submit a list of proposed military base closures and realignments to the Commission by April 15, 1991. In accordance with the statute these recommendations were to be based upon a force-structure plan submitted to Congress with the Department of Defense DoD budget request for fiscal year FY 1992. Anticipated levels of defense ftinding in the FY 1992-97 period and a reassessment of the probable threats to the United States drove the force-structure plan The present Administration viewed the changing work order as an opportunity to implement measured defense reductions.
