HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. -

 There may be cause for celebration at Selfridge Air National Guard Base in Harrison Township.

 The Senate Armed Services Committee approved a measure rejecting planned Pentagon cuts, which would have removed two dozen A-10 jet fighters from Selfridge and eliminated more than 600 jobs.

The committee is chaired by Sen. Carl Levin.
