Local Impact of BRAC

Today the good ole Post did a story on the local impact of BRAC and how many workers will not be leaving town regardless of where the jobs go. One recurring theme in the Blog world has been the battle over assesments and the impact they have in our lives here in No Va. Well news flash to all... Take 30,000 jobs out of job market and you will see the house demand, and therefore your assesments, drop. I can see this impact at least hitting those in the People's Republic of Arlington and Alexandria. I am curious though as to how many other jobs will be lost down the support pipeline. This battle over BRAC is going to be on the national front pages for the next several months. Should be interesting to see what actually happens when the commission makes its final report in September.
