WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) –
A United States Congressman says he has some concerns surrounding budgets cuts to the U.S. Department of Defense.
Congressman Jack Kingston addressed more than 50 members of the National Defense Industrial Association, Tuesday during a luncheon at the National Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins.
The congressman told the crowd military support groups in Warner Robins are "very important," they make a 3 billion dollar economic impact and he wants
to make sure that Robins Air Force Base Base is prepared for the next
round of BRAC (closure and realignment commission).
“One of the proposals was to move the air reserve command, which would have meant a loss of 1,400 jobs here at Warner Robins,” said Kingston. “Now the air force is not going along with that recommendation. So, I feel confident that we push back on that.”
