Powder River Decision a Victory for Ellsworth and the Air Force, Says Noem
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Kristi Noem today applauded the U.S. Air Force’s final Record of Decision on the Powder River Training Complex as a positive step toward finalizing the proposed expansion of air space.
“Nothing can replace the value of air time for our airmen,” said Noem. “Proper training and readiness are critical to our airmen’s safety and success in the field. With the expansion of air space at Powder River, Ellsworth Air Force Base and the U.S. Air Force will have critical access to one of the largest training complexes in the country. I have worked with the Air Force and monitored the progress of the Powder River Training Complex expansion since coming to Congress. The Record of Decision released today clears an important hurdle for the U.S. Air Force and moves us one step closer to finalizing this mission-critical project.”
