Larson Statement on Bradley Air National Guard Base Court Decision

WASHINGTON D.C. ? U.S. Congressman John Larson (CT-1) today issued the following statement in response to a federal court ruling blocking the BRAC Commission from including the realignment of the Bradley Air National Guard Base in their final recommendation to President Bush:

?This is a good day for the men and women of the ?Flying Yankees? and for the State of Connecticut. All along I remained confident that we would prevail because the law is simple and clear: the Bradley A-10s cannot be removed without the consent of our Governor. 

?While today?s victory is an important one, it is by no means the final word on the fate of Bradley. I continue to stand firmly beside Governor Rell, Attorney General Blumenthal and General Martin in fighting any further efforts to remove the A-10s from Bradley.

?I applaud the Governor, Attorney General and our Adjutant General for their incredible effort to preserve the 103rd Fighter Wing. I am confident that by continuing to work together, we will secure the future of the Connecticut Air National Guard.?
