Megabase to Get $100 Million:

The House version of the 2008 military construction appropriations bill contains $100 million to fund construction to turn McGuire Air Force Base, Ft. Dix, and NAS Lakehurst in New Jersey into the BRAC 2005-proposed megabase. “This is the most appropriated funding we’ve ever seen for Ft. Dix and McGuire Air Force Base,” says Rep. Jim Saxton (R-N.J.) in a statement. He continued, “The impact on the South Jersey economy will be felt for years.”
