DoD bemoans sequestration, stop-gap funding
JDW Americas Editor
US Department of Defense (DoD) leaders are pleased to have seen an end to the government shutdown, but have voiced concern that sequestration remains in place and that they now must operate under a restrictive stop-gap budget measure.
Congress, through a Senate-brokered deal, re-opened the federal government on 17 October after a 16-day shutdown was spurred by House Republicans seeking to defund a healthcare law and so did not appropriate most federal funding for Fiscal Year 2014 (FY14).
