Principi’s Secret Plan?

BRAC Chairman Anthony Principi says he’s working on a bridge between USAF and officials whose states stand to lose Air National Guard units or aircraft or both. In a Tuesday night broadcast interview on C-SPAN, Principi said his panel is crafting a “thoughtful compromise” that could satisfy the Air Force, which wants to close many Guard bases, and Governors who want to keep ANG aircraft and units where they are. He said commissioners are close to a consensus on a plan, but no one’s talking in specifics—yet.
