AGENCY:

Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission.

ACTION:

Notice of the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission—Change to the Agenda of a Previously Announced Open Meeting (Baltimore, MD); Correction.

SUMMARY:

The Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission published a document in the Federal Register of June 13, 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 Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Virginia that have been recommended by the Department of Defense (DoD). The agenda for this meeting has changed. A separate regional hearing will be scheduled on July 7, 2005 to discuss base realignment and closure actions in the District of Columbia and Virginia that have been recommended by the Department of Defense (DoD).

The delay of this change notice resulted from a Commission decision to accommodate recent requests from representatives of communities in the District of Columbia and Virginia 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.
