Resolution in support of F-35 jets passes state Senate

The debate over F-35 jets coming to Truax Field in Madison is growing as lawmakers spar over the plan.

The Wisconsin State Senate voted and approved a resolution Tuesday supporting the deployment of F-35s to Dane County. Truax is one of five locations under consideration for housing two squadrons of F-35s.

Republican lawmakers introduced the resolution in hopes to raise awareness about the economic benefits to the entire state, but this vote doesn’t have any effect on whether the jets would come.

The resolution comes as several community members who live in the flight path are concerned about the noise impact.An environmental impact study shows the noise from the jets could mean more than 1,000 homes would be “incompatible for residential use,” according to the Air Force and National Guard Bureau.
