“The Senate did the right thing by following the House’s lead this year by rejecting any discussion of a BRAC,”said Courtney. “Our region knows all too well that we must remain vigilant in defending SUBASE New London and that is what I have done since taking office, working with key stakeholders to support the base and its critical role in our nation’s defense.
