This is the 2012 hearing "Department of Defense Authorization for Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2013" held before the Senate Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Claire McCaskill: "The Subcommittee on Readiness and Management Support meets this morning to hear testimony on the fiscal year 2013 budget request for the Department of Defense (DOD) installations and environment. At today's hearing, we will hear from our witnesses on their request for military construction (MILCON) and environmental programs for fiscal year 2013. […] Last year, this subcommittee identified approximately $1.7 billion in programs that could be eliminated or deferred in the MILCON and environment accounts, approximately 10 percent of the President's budget request. While I cannot promise we will find similar savings in this fiscal year, I do not believe there is anything DOD is doing that we cannot do better, and I do not believe that there is any part of the budget that can be off limits as we look for savings. I will be looking at every area of this subcommittee's jurisdiction again this year as we attempt to cut duplicative projects and programs, increase management efficiencies, and reduce waste." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Claire McCaskill, Dorothy Robyn, Katherine G. Hammack, Jackalyne Pfannenstiel, Terry A. Yonkers, Lloyd J. Austin, Mark E. Ferguson, III, Joseph F. Dunford, Jr., and Philip M. Breedlove.
