U.S. House axes Washington County OLF site.
"The House has taken the Washington County site off the table because it posed a danger to the community, pilots and aircraft," wrote Butterfield, a Democrat from Wilson. "This is a clear message that if the Navy wants to move forward with an OLF it must have the support of the community."
Now we have all 4 big boys saying the Navy needs to have local support before moving forward with their OLF site!
The roster of elected officials opposed to this OLF or stating local support is required:
Camden County board of commissioners
Gates County board of commissioners
Perquimans County board of commissioners
Washington County board of commissioners
Frontpaged by A . . . a much better report than what I wrote. Thanks, Parmea.
