Vitter to Continue Blocking Army Nominee Until Explosives Removed from Camp Minden

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) today called on the U.S. Army to take responsibility for disposing of explosive material at Camp Minden in Minden, La. The Army sent a letter to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) yesterday rejecting its responsibility to do so. In a letter on July 17, 2014, Vitter announced that he is blocking the nomination of Alissa M. Starzak to be General Counsel of the Department of the Army until the munitions have been cleared.
