Katie Tubb, Research Associate and Coordinator, The Heritage Foundation

When Nevada Senator Harry Reid announced he would not run for re-election, he reopened the debate about nuclear waste disposal in this country. Reid had staunchly opposed a plan to store the waste at Yucca Mountain in his state. But never say never. Today five members of Congress, led by the Republican chairman of the House Environment and Economy Subcommittee are visiting the site. Katie Tubb is a research associate and coordinator for the Heritage Foundation who has studied this issue.

Steve Bucci, Heritage Foundation

He's one of the contributors to the new 2015 Index of U.S. Military Strength just out from the Heritage Foundation.

The budget will be one of the first things the new Congress takes up, according to leadership on both sides of Capitol Hill. The Defense Department is already starting its push to end -- or at least cut back on -- sequestration. James Jay Carafano is director of the Davis Institute for International Studies at the Heritage Foundation. He shared his Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. He says he thinks Congress will do a real defense budget in 2015, but that doesn't mean sequestration will go away.

Steve Bucci, Allison Center Director, Heritage Foundation

The Pentagon announces more successful air strikes against the Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria. The new year hasn't brought a new policy in dealing with the Islamic State, but more American advisers are on the ground in Iraq. And 2015 may be the year that calls for more of an American military presence in both countries to get louder. Steve Bucci is Director of the Allison Center for Foreign and National Security Policy at the Heritage Foundation. He's former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, and a retired Army Special Forces officer. He shared his Top 3 for 2015 on In Depth with Francis Rose. He said decisions the enemy makes may force the hand of the United States.

He tells In Depth with Francis Rose about three recommendations to keep the military from declining in capability as demands increase.

Federal officials say Chinese hackers broke into the networks of the Government Accountability Office and the Government Printing Office back in March. While news of Chinese cyber attacks on federal agencies isn't unprecedented, the March attacks, first reported by the New York Times, have some observers scratching their heads. They say it's unclear why those two agencies would be targeted -- particularly in the case of GPO. Steve Bucci is director of the Douglas and Sarah Allison Center for Foreign and National Security Policy at the Heritage Foundation. He's also former deputy assistant Defense secretary. He said the attacks shouldn't come as a surprise on In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu.

John Malcolm, Senior Legal Fellow, Heritage Foundation

President Barack Obama has rarely used his power to pardon people convicted of crimes. The Justice Department says that's about to change. It gave federal inmates hope by publishing new criteria last week. If you are a low-level drug offender with no history of violence or ties to organized crime, and you've served at least 10 years, then you've got a chance. Now the department is bracing for thousands of petitions. John Malcolm, a senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp why presidential pardons have declined over the years.

Congress' to-do list crowded with budget headaches

Congress returns to work today with a crowded agenda and little time. Lawmakers must come to agreement on 2014 funding before the fiscal year ends Sept. 30 or risk a government shutdown. Also on the agenda: coming up with an alternative to the automatic spending constraints known as sequestration and negotiating a raise in the government's borrowing limit. There are also other measures affecting federal employees that remain to be worked out, including legislation to overhaul the cash-strapped Postal Service and a potential 1 percent pay raise for civilian federal workers.
