Mattis-Dunford Budget Testimony

National VFW - 3/28/2017

On Thursday, Secretary of Defense James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford testified before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense. Testimony focused on a three-phased multi-year approach to restore readiness in the Armed Services, with fiscal year (FY) 17 funding focused on filling readiness gaps, FY18 funding on restoring balance caused by sequestration and continuing resolutions, and FY19 funding on returning to a sustained, high quality force prepared to meet the current security environment. Secretary Mattis stated: "Failure to reverse sequestration would bring about the need to recalibrate our approach to asserting U.S. influence around the world.” Watch the hearing.
