Congressman Hoyer has been the lead advocate for Southern Maryland’s military installations at the federal level and was instrumental in preserving 9,000 jobs at Patuxent River Naval Air Station while adding over 5,000 new jobs; protecting 3,000 jobs at Indian Head Naval Surface Warfare Center; and securing the future of Webster Field, St. Inigoes and retaining more than a dozen local contractors including 200 federal jobs and 1,400 private jobs.
Hoyer has worked closely with the Navy Alliance, the Pax Partnership, the Chamber of Commerce and local officials working to ensure that these three military installations are protected. He has further met with many of the leading decision makers at the Pentagon as part of his longstanding and ongoing efforts to educate our nation’s military leaders about the work being done at Southern Maryland’s defense installations and to make clear the vital role they play in keeping our homeland safe and secure.
Finally, as a senior member of the powerful Appropriations Committee, Congressman Hoyer has secured millions of federal dollars for a high number and wide variety of projects at Southern Maryland’s bases.
