Sequestration has put the Defense Department into some disarray. It's seeking the maximum authority for reprogramming funds. It's trying to decide whether to furlough civilian employees, and if so for how long. And an unwelcome uptick in the tempo of the Afghanistan war may cause an $8 billion budget gap. Jacques Gansler is a former Pentagon procurement chief, and now a professor of public policy and private enterprise at the University of Maryland. He discusses what DoD's options might be.

The government is searching for a place to put 65,000 tons of nuclear waste. A few years ago, it abandoned a plan to store the waste at Yucca Mountain, Nev. Now the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Energy Department are exploring more options. One possibility is the creation of a temporary storage facility until a permanent solution is built. The two agencies held a joint meeting yesterday. Bloomberg Government reporter Brian Wingfield was there.
