DoD faces possible $19B shortfall
Friday - 12/10/2010, 3:45pm EST
DoD Buzz reports that budget writers in the House did, however, grant the military permission to move money around within the defense budget.
A Pentagon spokeswoman told DoD Buzz that even if adequate funds were provided, a continuing resolution usually does not provide adequate flexibility to meet operating and wartime needs. Congress would have to approve it. The spokeswoman said the House version of the CR would give DoD some added flexibility to help meet some of those needs.
The shortfall means the Pentagon may be tempted to eliminate funding for some projects. That could include the second engine for the F-136 Joint Strike Fighter and the Marine's Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle.
