The list of military bases and projects that could be affected by cuts in funds so that the border wall can be built has been released. Locally it includes the ANG facility at Toledo Express Airport. The work there was to be a $15 million hangar improvement project that was included in an omnibus bill passed earlier this year. That, along with $100 million in other Ohio projects, could be on the chopping block if Trump decides to take the money for a border wall from the military instead of having Mexico pay for it which he promised numerous times during his campaign.
For many years the 180th Fighter Wing of the Ohio Air National Guard has been supported by Northwest Ohio and it remains to be seen if the border wall or the local economy will take precedence in this case. On which would you like to see the funds spent? TUESDAY 60 MINUTE POLL
