This week on “Fed Access”, Katherine Blakeley, research fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, joins host Derrick Dortch to talk about her new report: Seven Areas To Watch In The FY17 Defense Budget.

Blakeley will discuss trends in defense spending, including an increased focus on cyber security.

She’ll also talk about how the constraints put in place by the 2011 Budget Control Act have affected both defense and non defense spending.

Blakeley will also discuss new spending priorities for DoD, and where she thinks defense dollars will go when a new president is sworn in next January.
