This is the March 16, 2017 hearing on "The Effect of Sequestration and Continuing Resolutions on Army Modernization and Readiness," before the House of Representatives Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces of the Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Michael R. Turner: "So the purpose of this hearing today is to conduct a more comprehensive review of the state of Army modernization and understand what the Army will require to rebuild itself and win decisively. We need to better understand how and why the Army is outranged, outgunned, and outdated in some circumstances so we can begin the process of fixing this problem. As such, the witnesses have been asked to address and identify, one, the near- and longterm impacts that continuing resolutions and sequestrations are having on the Army's ability to modernize and ready its forces; two, the processes the Army is utilizing to prioritize modernization requirements to address immediate and near-term capability gaps in a budget-constrained environment; three, whether the Army should be focusing its modernization and strategies across the Future Years Defense Programs to address the anticipated security environment; and, four, the potential resources that would be required to support these strategies." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: LTG Joseph Anderson, and LTG John M. Murray.
