The Defense Department starts a new fiscal year Wednesday without a final budget in place, just like the rest of the government. But department leaders are working under the assumption that Congress will eventually reject up to $70 billion worth of proposals the department made to find cost savings in its 2015 budget. Federal News Radio's DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has more.
The Defense Department is proposing stricter lending protections for service members who take out short-term loans. The department says the move would close several loopholes in current regulations that are supposed to protect service members from predatory lenders. Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with details from his DoD Reporter's Notebook.
