The Official BRAC List has been released and Jeff Quinton is putting it into HTML form, instead of PDF/Acrobat. Under the Base Realignment And Closure (BRAC) process, the Secretary of Defense makes recommendations to a commission, nominated by the President, confirmed by the Senate. The commission, after being confirmed by the Senate, reviews these recommendations and makes their own recommendations to the President. The President then reviews the recommendation, either sends those back to the commission for additional work or forwards them, without changes, to the Congress, and then the recommendations of the commission go into effect unless disapproved by a joint resolution of the Congress. has more on BRAC’s history, process, and the current composition of the commission, while the U.S. Defense Department’s official BRAC site offers definitions, articles, and a host of other resources.
