  • San Antonio Utility Fuels Expansion at Area Installations

    Over $3 billion in construction at three San Antonio military installations. The arrival of almost 50,000 medic students each year at Fort Sam Houston. The establishment of the San Antonio Military Medical Center at Fort Sam and Lackland Air Force Base. The creation of Joint Base San Antonio, the military’s largest installation by population. Unless you were confined to a deep bunker at an undisclosed location for the past six years, it would have been difficult to miss the news that BRAC 2005 is transforming San Antonio into DOD’s principal center for medical training, bringing a projected $15 billion annual economic impact. What the headlines don’t mention is the military’s partnership with CPS Energy, the area’s municipally owned utility that is supporting the growth through investments to ensure the area’s bases have a reliable source of energy …

Brown’s plan would shift about $1.7 billion to other programs. Abolishing redevelopment agencies is one element of the governor’s strategy to balance the state’s budget by cutting $12.5 billion in spending in the coming fiscal year …

  • House Plan Would Leave DOD’s 2011 Budget Largely Intact

    Defense spending would rise by $9.6 billion in the current fiscal year compared to fiscal 2010, with military construction and veterans affairs spending falling by $1.9 billion, under the allocation released this week by the House Budget Committee for each of the fiscal 2011 appropriations bills. Spending in both defense-related bills would drop when compared to the president’s FY 2011 request — defense by $13.2 billion and milcon and veterans affairs by $1.3 billion. The House plan would provide a total of $517.7 billion for defense spending and $74.7 billion for milcon and veterans affairs in FY 2011. Of the allocations for the 12 appropriations panels, defense is the only one that would not fall, compared to 2010, with federal-wide discretionary spending dropping on a net basis by $32 billion …
