Addressing privatized housing on our military bases

Dear Friend,

This week, the House Armed Services Committee’s Subcommittee on Readiness held a hearing to examine the state of housing on our military bases.

In addition to overall quality and safety of the military housing, I am also concerned with housing contracts for particularly young servicemembers. I am concerned that young servicemembers are being forced to pay out-of-pocket costs in situations where they lose an arbitration hearing versus a multi-million dollar corporation. I believe there is a great need for senior installation leaders to be involved in the mediation process to help servicemembers work with base-level offices to avoid this undue burden.
