Obama Administration Opposes China Lake Expansion

Post by Jim_b » Sun May 04, 2014 6:28 pm

The Obama administration said Tuesday it opposed a House bill that would expand a naval base in the Western Mojave Desert and permanently place the military in charge of managing its nearly 1.1 million acres. Mouritsen said the BLM cannot support adding the 19,000 acres. She called it a popular recreation area with trail riding, camp sites and hunting. She also called it an important wildlife corridor, including for the threatened desert tortoise. http://blm.gov/lwld
