Good news, bad news (gov't job edition)
Fort Monmouth in New Jersey is closing and transferring many of its jobs to Aberdeen Proving Ground. About 300 New Jersey families have relocated to Maryland in the past six months. ... More than 700 are expected this year, with the largest move set for 2010, a year ahead of the required September 2011 BRAC completion date.
Bad news: Gov. Martin O'Malley's plan to deal with budget problems by laying off 500 to 1,000 people. Job cuts -- government or otherwise -- mean fewer people able to buy new homes, and potentially more people in danger of missing mortgage payments on the homes they have.
