Fort Campbell May Face Budget Cuts


FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — The head of the Christian County Chamber of Commerce says the Fort Campbell area should be prepared for budget cuts to happen at the military post on the Kentucky-Tennessee state line.

Chamber President Marian Mason told The Kentucky New Era (http://bit.ly/1tWjVRD) that chamber members would be meeting with their counterparts in Clarksville, Tennessee after the elections next week to discuss a unified strategy of dealing with cutbacks at the Army post.

Mason and other met Thursday with members of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee. Mason says Hopkinsville, Clarksville and the surrounding area need to be prepared for the cuts.

The military is cutting back on size after more than a decade of war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
