#KEM Quarterly on Defense: President’s DoD FY 2016 Budget Proposal & Sequestration Impacts

The President’s DoD FY 2016 DoD Budget Proposal (PBR) provides $534B for the base budget and $51B in Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funding for a total of $585B. 

The PBR strives to reverse the decline in national defense spending over the past 5 years in order to counter threats while ensuring force readiness, capacity, capability & modernization.

KEM believes Sequestration’s funding levels degrade military readiness, force size & lives of our troops.
