U.S. Rep Tim Ryan of Niles, D-17th, has voted in support of defense legislation that would transfer seven acres of federal land to Lordstown.

On Thursday, Ryan voted for the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which authorizes military spending and includes an amendment to transfer the seven acres of Army-owned land to the village.

According to a press release from Ryan, Lordstown will receive the land, which is adjacent to the Ohio Commerce Center, free of cost, with the understanding that it will be used for public interest.

The House bill also provides a 1.7 percent pay raise to active and reserve military members.

“I’m very proud to have been successful in securing seven acres of land for the village of Lordstown, which can be used to provide additional opportunities locally for education or economic development,” Ryan said in the statement.

He added that the bill also requires the Secretary of Defense to develop a national security strategy for the nation’s technology and industrial base.

As Archie would say, "Hoop Dee Do". Congressman Ryan has a way of getting attention (Cruze, V&M,...), where was his support to doing anything possible for the RG workers of Warren that lost their jobs. If he did, not enough.
