Congratulations to Sen. Barbara Mikulski on her stance regarding the Patuxent River Air Station and the prolonged initiative to place wind turbines in Somerset County ("Eastern Shore wind farm: Let the Navy decide," Aug. 18).
Senator Mikulski carefully weighed the facts in the matter, she was briefed on the critical missions at Pax, its highly sophisticated range systems, and the benefits of completing a technical study being conducted by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on radar, risk and mitigation.
Ms. Mikulski is correct to insert language into the Defense Appropriation Bill to allow the MIT technical study to run its course in order to make sound decisions, not ones based on rhetoric.
She is to be applauded for supporting the Maryland General Assembly in its voting calling for a cautious, pragmatic approach to a serious national issue.
