Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission.
Notice of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission—Change to the Agenda of a Previously Announced Open Meeting (Clovis, NM); Correction.
The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission published a document in the Federal Register of June 7, 2005, concerning an open meeting to receive comments from Federal, state and local government representatives and the general public on base realignment and closure actions in New Mexico that have been recommended by the Department of Defense (DoD). The agenda for this meeting has changed.
The delay of this change notice resulted from recent requests from representatives of communities in Arizona and Nevada to accommodate delegations from those communities and the short time-frame established by statute for the operations of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission. The Commission requests that the public consult the 2005 Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission Web site, http://www.brac.gov, for updates.Start Further Info
