Pentagon War Spending Bill Heads to Hill Soon

Defense News reports that “the White House will soon send the Pentagon’s 2015 war spending request to the US Congress, with sources saying the budget plan will likely head to Capitol Hill by the end of the week.”  

“Asked Tuesday when the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) budget plan would be revealed, Pentagon Comptroller Robert Hale said: “very soon.” He deferred timing questions to the White House Office of Management and Budget.”  

“An OMB spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment, but sources say the bill will be sent to lawmakers imminently.”  

“As for the size of the spending request, it will be less than the $85 billion Congress approved for Afghanistan operations in 2014.”
