Play associated audio

The commissioners in Maryland's Queen Anne's county are withdrawing their support for a proposed federal security training complex in Ruthsburg. County Chief Operating officer Gregg Todd read a statement at a meeting of the county commissioners just before the Christmas holidays citing a lack of information, and communication from federal agencies as reasons for withdrawing support.

The State Department wants to consolidate training at one site within 150 miles of Washington. Officials announced last month that the site in Queen Anne's county was the preferred one.

Commissioner Dr. Eric Wargotz has written Congressman Frank Kratovil expressing his concerns about weapons training, traffic, and water pollution at the proposed training center.
