SecDef to Detail 2014 Sequestration Cuts
Secretary of Defense (SecDef) Chuck Hagel announced that Defense Department plans for dealing with 2014 sequestration budget cuts will be submitted to the Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC), possibly as early as next week. Neither the House (H.R. 1960) nor Senate (S. 1197) Armed Services Committee-approved version of the FY 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) accounts for $52 billion in cuts that will take effect on September 30, 2013, unless alternative spending plans are approved.
