In a news conference with Mississippi reporters, Lott was asked about a proposal to reduce the number of Navy intermediate pilot training bases from two to one.

"(It) Makes no sense at all. We need the two we have. They're being used to probably maximum capacity right now and they had a cut last round," Lott said. "We need both of these bases and we ought to keep them both."

The other navy intermediate strike training base is in Texas.
