(Washington) -- Members of the midstate's congressional delegation are hoping to bring a joint Army-Navy storage and preservation facility to Cumberland County.
It would be located at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Middlesex Township.
Republican U.S. Senator Pat Toomey has introduced a bill that would mandate a Defense Department study on the feasibility of bringing a portion of the Navy’s historical collections to the center.
“The U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center is ideally suited for this mission. This facility already has the technology, capability, staff and knowledge to help the Navy better preserve its documents and history,” Toomey says.
Democratic Senator Bob Casey is co-sponsoring the proposal.
GOP Congressman Lou Barletta, whose district includes Middlesex Township, plans to introduce a companion measure in the House.
