Jim Moran to Discuss Base Closings in Northern Virginia

U.S. Rep. Jim Moran (D-8th) will hold a town hall meeting from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Monday, June 20, at George Mason Law School in Arlington to discuss the impact of the Base Realignment and Closure recommendations for Northern Virginia.

The Department of Defense recommended last month that nearly 23,000 employees who are currently housed in leased office space in Northern Virginia be relocated. Another 18,000 employees would be moved to Ft. Belvoir.

The impact of those changes on the economies, workforce, and transportation plans for Fairfax and Arlington counties is unclear. Moran has invited Joe R. Reeder, former undersecretary of the U.S. Army and the present co-chairman of the Virginia Commission on Military Bases, to speak at the meeting.

The meeting will be held in the atrium of the George Mason University Law School, 3301 Fairfax Drive, Arlington. (click for directions)
