This article presents several news items related to military base closure, industrial safety and other issues in the U.S. The federal Base Closure and Realignment Commission on July 19, 2005 agreed to add eight other bases to the Pentagon's original list of 808 installations recommended to be shuttered or revamped. The U.S. House has passed four bills that supporters claim would make it easier for small businesses to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulations. But with no similar measures pending in the U.S. Senate, the bills have only a slim chance of becoming law.
