Letter to Congress on Cuts to Fiscal Year 2016 Pentagon Budget

ringing the Fiscal Year 2016 budget in line with the caps will help the Department of Defense avoid sequestration and save valuable resources in an era of budgetary constraint. We recommend that in implementing these options, Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) for Fiscal Year 2016 be budgeted at no more than the president’s requested amount of $50.9 billion.
