first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals Runway 04/22 was built in the 1950s when Edwards was being turned into the Air Force’s flight test center. To illustrate its deterioration, former flight test commander Doug Pearson once gave chunks broken off it to a visiting congressional delegation. The Edwards housing funding is included in a $4 billion portion of the bill. Congressional leaders added $223 million over the president’s initial budget, stating they wish to “to continue the goal of providing adequate housing for our service members and their families.” The housing funding will continue a project launched in the 1990s to replace Edwards’ aging quarters. Much of the base’s housing was built in the 1950s. It lacks central heating and cooling systems, and is becoming increasingly costly to repair, according to base officials. Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 [email protected] EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE – Congressional leaders are proposing to fund the construction of 226 housing units and a new runway at Edwards Air Force Base. The Military Quality of Life and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act of 2006, which is expected to be approved by both the House and the Senate, contains $59.69 million for new housing units and $37 million to start a $103 million project to replace Edwards’ aging main runway. The Edwards funding is included in the conference report in which differences between the Senate and House of Representatives versions of the bill were reconciled. Both houses must vote on the final version of the bill and it needs President George W. Bush’s signature to become law. The runway funding is included in a $6.2 billion portion of the bill to update Defense Department facilities. Plans call for building the runway parallel to the aging 04/22 runway so test work can continue during construction. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
