Statement on Meeting with General Dunwoody
July 14, 2011

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] - Following a bipartisan, bi-state delegation meeting with General Ann Dunwoody, the Commanding General of the Army Materiel Command, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) recorded a statement making clear that any proposal to close or relocate Rock Island Arsenal's Joint Manufacturing and Technology Center (JMTC) would be met with strong resistance in Congress. In the meeting, held in Durbin's Washington, D.C. office, Dunwoody reassured the Illinois and Iowa delegation that the Army currently has no plans to close the JMTC, but could not disclose the work of an internal task force that was rumored to have been considering JMTC closure as a cost-savings measure.
