In a letter to Secretary of the Navy Donald C Winter, Burr says the Navy's preferred site in Washington and Beaufort counties would be an "untenable proposition." Burr, a Republican, says the proposed site would be detrimental to the environment, would negatively impact the local economy and could threaten the safety of military pilots.
Burr's letter comes after the conclusion of a series of public hearings in eastern North Carolina on the issue. Burr also expressed pessimism over finding an acceptable agreement on the location for the airstrip.
