Albany -- Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission officials are concerned M.C.L.B. Albany may not get as many new jobs as expected.

 M.C.L.B. Albany is expected to receive 150 new jobs, taking over the workload from the Red River Army Depot in Texas.

Monday's BRAC vote left Red River on the closure list. But Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Expert James Taylor said Red River's arguments for staying open had an impact on the Commission. "They have a reasonable argument. Whether they will come off, only the commission and the President have got to make that decision soon."

Taylor said that if the Red River Army Depot remains open, in the long run it could cut down on the Department of Defense efficiency in equipment repair.
