Documents used by North Carolina officials pertaining to the state’s military installations in relation to a BRAC round can be withheld from public view, under the final version of legislation approved unanimously by both chambers of the North Carolina General Assembly on Wednesday. The measure now goes to Gov. Pat McCrory (R) for his signature. State Rep. Elmer Floyd (D), whose district includes Fort Bragg, said the bill would exempt information about the state’s strategy in a future base closure round from being disclosed through state public records laws and public meeting laws, reported the Fayetteville Observer. The Military Lands Protection Act also strengthens laws preventing tall structures from being built within five miles of an installation if the military opposes the project.
