Adm. Paul Zukunft, Commandant, U.S. Coast Guard

When we last checked in with Coast Guard Commandant, Adm. Paul Zukunft, the service was operating under a continuing resolution. Zukunft told us that funding was not keeping pace with the Coast Guard's need for better infrastructure, and that meant the Coast Guard wasn't keeping pace in some of its most important missions like stopping drug-runners because of its funding problems. Now, at least one thing is different: The service has a full budget for the remainder of the year. Zukunft joined Tom Temin and Emily Kopp on the Federal Drive from the Sea Air Space 2015 conference at National Harbor with more on how things are operating now.
