Question of the Day
Mr. Coburn said in May that the Navy had been forced to curtail at-sea training and flying because of a shortfall in 2009 O&M funds.
The White House Office of Management and Budget has called on lawmakers to reverse the cuts.
“These reductions would hurt force readiness and increase stress on military people and equipment,” the agency said.
The House approved its version of the bill in July. Ms. Peterson said that lawmakers still could restore the funding in the conference that reconciles the two versions of the bill.
The conference “presents a final opportunity for Congress to take their hands out of the cookie jar and put some dough where it’s really needed - protecting our fighting men and women,” she said.
