White House clashes with House over closing unneeded military bases

by Travis J. Tritten | Jul 12, 2017, 4:27 PM 

The White House has said it "strongly objects" to a House proposal that keeps the military from closing billions of dollars worth of unused facilities around the country in 2018.

The pushback came from the Office of Management and Budget in a statement Tuesday on the House's annual defense policy bill, which was passed by committee late last month and now is headed toward a floor vote this week.

The Armed Services Committee included a section in the bill that bars the Defense Department from shuttering any facilities as part of the Base Realignment and Closure program, or BRAC. :snip:
