Senate Expresses Support for F-35s in Madison

MADISON, WI (Ben Caxton) — The state Senate has approved a resolution expressing support for basing F-35 fighter jets at the Truax Field Air National Guard Base in Madison. Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald warned what could happen if the new jets are not based there “The economic impact is massive, but the last thing you want is an abandoned Truax Field, that’s going to have some buildings that quite honestly, you know, are never going to be occupied again if we don’t move forward with the F-35.” Residents of densely populated neighborhoods near the airport have raised concerns over noise from the new planes.
