Two Colorado legislators representing districts that are home to military installations plan to introduce a measure commissioning a study to help the state prepare for the next round of base closures. “It affects the whole state, but particularly Aurora and Colorado Springs,” Senate President Morgan Carroll (D) told the Colorado Spring Gazette. “It’s a potential multi-billion dollar impact to the state as far as what happens in the future base realignment and closure,” said Carroll, who represents Aurora, home to Buckley Air Force Base and administrative offices at the former Lowry AFB. The bill’s co-sponsor would be the Colorado Senate’s Republican leader, Bill Cadman, who is from Colorado Springs, the host community for Fort Carson, Peterson and Schriever Air Force bases, Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station and the Air Force Academy.
