In the latest round of Base Realignment And Closure activities, which fortunately for Northern California (and the nation at large) spared Beale and Travis Air Force Bases, a wing of the Illinois Air National Guard was to be moved to Indiana. According to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the governor of Illinois argues that some federal law, which he doesn't specify, forbids the realignment if he does not consent--and he most definitely does not consent.
My question is, who owns the airplanes?
I already know the answer, and I don't believe the Illinois governor has a case here. Then again, I also thought there was no way the Supreme Court could rule in favor of New London in the Kelo case.
