Congressman Mike Rogers Talks BRAC Cuts In Montgomery

Congressman Mike Rogers toured the 187th Fighter Wing facilities on Tuesday, but he admits, he is still concerned about proposed BRAC cuts at Maxwell Air Force Base.

The Department of Defense has recommended 12-hundred jobs at Maxwell Air Force Base should be moved to Massachusetts. However, that is not the way Representative Mike Rogers sees it. With a war going on, he says there shouldn't be any cuts at all, anywhere.

Since the Department of Defense has already made those recommendations, he's relying on local communities to tell him what they want him to do next. Rogers tells WSFA 12 News, "The thing that I have told every community, and I've got in addition to Montgomery as you know, I've got Ft. Benning in my district and I've got the Anniston Army Depot. I've told each of those communities they have to decide what their case is and what their approach is going to be and they have to draw on us as resources to partner in that process. It is inappropriate for me to tell the Montgomery community how they should make their argument.

Local leaders want to study the numbers the Department of Defense used to make its decision so they can determine if there are any inaccuracies.
