Subject: Flash - Military brass destruction policy reversed
Dear MSSA Friends,
I just received a phone call from the office of U.S. Senator Tester
of Montana to inform me that at 5:15 (EST) today a letter cosigned by
Senator Tester (D-MT) and Senator Baucus (D-MT) was faxed to the
Department of Defense asking DoD to reverse its new policy requiring
destruction of fired military cartridge brass. At 5:30, I am told,
Tester's office received a fax back from DoD saying that the brass
destruction policy IS reversed.
Others report to me that they are already seeing evidence of this on
the Websites of entities that liquidate surplus DoD commodities.
Our thanks go out to Senator Tester and Senator Baucus, and their
staff, for getting on this problem promptly and making the reversal happen
Staff for Tester and Baucus promise they will get me the
documentation for this reversal tomorrow morning. I'll forward that
when I get it.
