MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown says an Air National Guard base in north-central Ohio is getting a new mission that could mean 180 new jobs.

The Ohio Democrat said Thursday that the jobs would result from Mansfield Air National Guard receiving a new mission and eight C-130H planes from the Air Force.

The base last year was on a list of air guard bases around the country facing cuts.

President Barack Obama's administration earlier had proposed the elimination of four C-27 J Spartan cargo planes from Mansfield as part of a plan that would have retired 200 planes and involved more than 60 installations in 33 states.

But the White House said later last year that Obama was committed to finding a mission for the Mansfield base.
