CNO gives video update on budget priorities

The Navy sailed out of its budget crunch on Tuesday, when legislation that funds the service, along with the rest of the government, through September was signed into law. But the fleet did not emerge unscathed.

The spending bill enacts so-called sequestration cuts that strip the Navy of an estimated $4 billion through the rest of the fiscal year, which ends Sept. 30.

“We still have a little bit of a shortfall in operations and also in our investment accounts due to sequestration, but we’re in much better shape,” said Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jon Greenert in a video update posted Friday to the Navy’s YouTube page. “So, what’s next? Well, we’re going to move ahead in a very deliberate fashion and decide what’s important and make sure we fund those most important things.”
