Sep 4, 2013

Summary of the Findings of the Defense Advisory Committee, Peter G. Peterson Foundation and Stimson

“Not only has sequester occurred in fiscal year 2013, but with no fiscal deal in sight it could occur again in fiscal year 2014 and subsequent years – unless the Congress and the administration accept the reality of lower statutory budget levels….In this report, we provide 27 specific recommendations for implementing Strategic Agility that would save about $50 billion in constant fiscal year 2013 dollars, meet the budget levels required by law; and, by fiscal year 2015, eliminate the need for the false economies that are currently ‘hollowing out’ US military forces.”
