The Pentagon has determined that Mississippi military facilities will NOT receive any money for construction this year.
In his budget proposal for the 2004 fiscal year, President Bush requested $9.5 billion for military construction, but the Pentagon did not propose improvements to any Mississippi bases.
In fact, the Defense Department has asked Columbus Air Force Base to give back $700,000.
This means no improvements in the form of construction for Mississippi bases during this year for the base closure process begins in 2005.
