This is the May 25, 2017 hearing titled "Department of the Air Force Fiscal Year 2018 Budget Request for Seapower and Projection Forces" before the House Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces. From the opening statement of Robert J. Wittman: "[T]he subcommittee convenes to receive testimony on the fiscal year 2018 Air Force budget request regarding bomber, tanker, and airlift acquisition programs. [...] The fiscal year 2018 budget request for projection forces continues to modernize and recapitalize critical Air Force weapon systems. I am pleased to see significantly increased investment in the B-21 long-range strike bomber and steady investment in procuring KC-46A tankers. The budget also continues to take solid steps to modernize the legacy Guard and Reserve C-130H tactical airlift fleet and recapitalize the high-visibility Presidential aircraft. That said, I continue to be concerned about the ability of our military to properly provide for our Nation's defense given the damage that sequestration may have had on our fiscal year 2018 budget deliberations." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Arnold W. Bunch Jr., Jerry D. Harris, and Scott A. Vander.
