Good news from the Menendez office

Senators Robert Menendez and Frank Lautenberg have co-signed a letter to the top-ranking Senate and House Armed Services committee "conferees" (John McCain among them), urging inclusion of Congressman Chris Smith's amendment (already approved in the House) to F2010 defense spending legislation that would require the GAO to study the security and financial ramifications to all stakeholders of proposed Laurelwood civilian housing at NWS Earle.

This is good news to NOPE. The need for the letter is a technical matter as it relates to D.C. politics, but nonetheless validates the merits of NOPE's argument that the Laurelwood EIS put forth by Navy factfinders is utterly flawed, short on facts, and misleading to federal, state and local agencies required to comment on the "environmental impact statement."
