BRAC-Related Transportation Funding Approved

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations Bill which includes $300 million for BRAC-related transportation mitigation efforts at the new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD and facilities in Virginia. Congressman Chris Van Hollen and Senators Barbara A. Mikulski and Benjamin L. Cardin fought for funds to prepare Maryland communities and military bases for the 2005 BRAC process. The BRAC Commission’s recommendations are expected to bring 45,000 to 60,000 new jobs to Maryland by 2020 as well as new sources of state revenue.
