$15 Million for Army National Guard Base in Bangor, Maine

An Army National Guard Regional Training Institute will be constructed in Bangor, Maine.  The excerpt below is from Senator Sue Collin's office:
"U.S. Senator Susan Collins, a member of the Senate Appropriations and the Senate Armed Services Committees, announced that the Army National Guard has directed $15.5 million to the Maine Army National Guard for construction of the final phase of a Regional Training Institute at the Bangor Armed Forces Reserve Center. This funding was included in the Fiscal Year 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act which passed the Senate, with Senator Collins’ support, and was signed by the President last month.

“This funding will allow the Maine Army National Guard to finish construction of the Regional Training Institute in Bangor,” said Senator Collins. “I am proud to have helped secure funding for both phases of construction of this updated training facility which will support the men and women of the 240th Regiment and the Maine Army National Guard.”

Construction on phase one of the Regional Training Institute began last year. When it is completed, the facility will include classrooms, a student dormitory, cafeteria, athletic and training facilities."
