Rudy deLeon, Center for American Progress, Danielle Pletka, AEI

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) is looking for collaboration from the think tank community. He told Federal News Radio back in January that his House Armed Services Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces wants more input from groups of think tanks working together on issues of national defense and national security. At least one effort is delivering on Chairman Forbes's wish -- and was -- before he even expressed that wish. Danielle Pletka is senior vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Rudy deLeon is senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and former Deputy Secretary of Defense. Danielle tells In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu why their effort isn't just a collaboration between AEI and CAP.

Tom Donnelly, Co-Director, AEI

A new Defense Secretary likely won't get a confirmation hearing until after the 114th Congress convenes in January. Some people use the word opportunity to describe the change coming to DoD. Tom Donnelly is Co-Director of Marilyn Ware Center for Security Studies at the American Enterprise Institute. He writes in the Weekly Standard under the title the Hagel Opportunity. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he said there are actually two opportunities with the departure of Secretary Hagel.

FCC throws down cyber gauntlet to communications industry

Chairman Tom Wheeler said he wants to build on the initial success of the critical infrastructure cybersecurity framework released by the White House in February. He said it's not a matter of new regulations, but creating a joint approach to improving the network security across the entire communications sector. Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) renews hope for Congress to pass information sharing legislation this year.

Will federal pay freeze rear its head again?

With the House postponing a vote on extending the federal pay freeze, feds are back on course to get a slight pay increase in March for the first time in two years. But Andrew Biggs, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and an expert on public-sector compensation, says that the pressing budget issues the government faces means the issue of federal pay probably isn't going anywhere.
