Pentagon says full-year CR would cut its 2022 spending by more than $20B

The government’s been running under a continuing resolution for three and a half months now. At the moment, there aren’t any clear signs of a spending agreement that would head off a full-year CR. Pentagon leaders say that would be extremely bad news for the military. Rather than just keeping 2022 spending levels the same as last year, they say a CR would actually reduce DoD’s spending power by more than $20 billion this year. Federal News Network’s Jared Serbu has details on some of the effects they’re predicting.
