(AP) - U.S. Rep. Sander Levin says he&#39;s hopeful that a Pentagon decision to add 24 C-130 air transport planes will offset sharp job cuts planned at Selfridge Air National Guard Base.<br /><br /> Defense Secretary Leon Panetta recommended Tuesday that the military budget the Air National Guard planes and the 2,200 personnel needed to support them.<br /><br /> Levin says the announcement &quot;is a positive step in the battle for equitable treatment of the guard.&quot; The Royal Oak Democrat says he&#39;ll press to see that the C-130s are based at Selfridge, 20 miles northeast of Detroit in Macomb County&#39;s Harrison Township.<br /><br /> The Obama administration budget for fiscal year 2013 now calls for cutting a net 450 part-time and 200 full-time jobs at Selfridge with the relocation of two-dozen A-10 Thunderbolt II air-to-ground attack aircraft.
