Pentagon Urges Congress to Fully Fund Military: Short-Term Funding Is ‘Wasteful’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
Department of Defense chief spokesperson Dana W. White urged Congress on Thursday to fully fund America's military and not pass another temporary continuing resolution.
A reporter asked White about Secretary of Defense James Mattis' conversations with lawmakers since the current continuing resolution, or CR, only funds the military through Feb. 8.
White said she was optimistic Congress could pass legislation that would keep the military funded throughout the current fiscal year.
