The Pentagon has released its list of military construction projects that could be cut to fund President Donald Trump’s requested border wall. The bottom line: basically every state has a project that could be delayed in order to get construction underway, but only a very specific set could actually be cut.
To tally up $6.8 billion for wall construction, the Pentagon has proposed culling unobligated spending from approved construction projects. From the list, only funds from projects that had a projected award date after Oct. 1, 2019, are eligible to be used, and it can not include military barracks.
The article goes on to state the following:
The list released by the Pentagon includes all unobligated projects — not all of which would be eligible to be used, based on their criteria.
Here are some of the projects on the list:
- $40 million for a information systems complex at White Sands, New Mexico
- $50 million for a rotary wing apron at Wheeler Army Air Field in Hawaii
- $53 million for a UAV hangar for Kunsan Air Base in Korea
- $95 million for an engineering center at the U.S. Military Academy
