  • Recommendations
    • Carefully consider the impact of budget cuts on continued viability of A&D industrial base and the ripple effects that has on national and economic security.
    • Eliminate automatic “across-the-board” defense budget reductions.
    • Reform federal acquisitions and procurement to allow for multi-year appropriations for complex systems.
    • Meet constitutional budget obligations which will provide assurances of continuity and sustainability of key programs and budgets.
