In response to a request by Sen. McCain (R-AZ) and Sen. Graham (R-SC), SecDef Panetta sent a letter that provided more specifics on what the DoD would cut if budget levels fell per the levels mandated by full sequestration of the JSCDR or Congress failed to agree on $1.2 billion in deficit reduction per the Budget Control Act of 2011. Both Senators have stated they would introduce legislation in the next session of Congress to overturn sequestration’s impact on the DoD if there is no budget deal.
