BRAC request sent to Congress

The BRAC process would look very similar to the 2005 round under the legislative proposal the Defense Department sent to Congress for base closure rounds in 2013 and 2015. The process for appointing commissioners, milestones and reports DOD must meet, and more, are essentially unchanged from the last round, based on a preliminary analysis of DoD's 36-page proposal. Lawmakers have made it clear that they have no appetite to authorize a BRAC round in 2013.
