Reacting to news reports that as many as nine military bases in California may be slated for shutdown, Gov. Pete Wilson on Sunday called the proposed closures an unfair blow to the state's economy and a potential threat to national security. "It is not fair to the working men and women whose livelihoods depend on the continued operations of these installations," Wilson said at a news conference outside the McClellan Air Force Base, one of the bases believed targeted for closure.

Seizing a final opportunity to plead for thousands of jobs jeopardized by proposals to close military bases, a California congressional delegation urged an independent panel on Monday to spare the already hard-hit state from further economic hardship. A parade of 17 elected California officials told the Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission that the state has suffered a disproportionate share of job losses from two earlier rounds of defense cutbacks.

President Clinton is planning to unveil a new relief package today for workers and communities expected to be hit in this year's round of military base closings, but the effort is likely to be a modest one, Administration officials said Tuesday. Administration strategists said that Clinton will release about $80 million in grants for workers and localities that had been approved by Congress in the fiscal 1993 budget but was frozen by the George Bush Administration.

The federal government is about to embark on another major round of military-base closings, with the prospect that this year's decisions will be more difficult to make--and far more controversial--than those ordered in 1991. Defense Secretary Les Aspin is slated to send a list of suggested shutdowns to the independent Defense Base Closure and Realignment Commission this week, in time to begin what is expected to be a tortuous round of hearings leading to final decisions sometime in early autumn.
