This is the February 28, 2013 hearing on "Impacts of a Continuing Resolution and Sequestration on Acquisition, Programming, and the Industrial Base," held before the U.S. House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Michael R. Turner: "The Tactical Air and Land Forces Subcommittee meets today in open session to receive testimony on the impacts of sequestration and the continuing resolution, CR, its impacts on acquisition, programming, and the industrial base. […] Today, we plan to leverage the information gained from that hearing and provide our members with the opportunity to gain a better understanding of how the CR and sequestration would impact defense acquisition, programs, projects and activities, and their associated industrial bases across the country. One of the most tragic aspects of our current situation is that sequestration was never supposed to happen, and there were numerous opportunities to avoid it. By laying out the details of the impacts of sequestration, the Department of Defense could have helped us in our education campaign to avoid the catastrophic cuts we are now facing." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Loretta Sanchez, Michael R. Turner, Charles R. Davis, Michael R. Moeller, Heidi Shyu, James O. Barclay, Sean J. Stackley, Allen G. Myers, John E. Wissler, and Daniel B. Maffei.
