McKeon Statement on DoD Furlough Update

Statement

House Armed Services Committee Chairman Howard P. "Buck" McKeon made the following statement on recent developments regarding the Department of Defense furloughs:

"While I am pleased that the Department found a way to alleviate furloughs and introduce a little more certainty into the workforce, I would caution that we are still miles away from resolving sequestration. The House has voted multiple times to end these mindless, automatic cuts that are creating a military readiness crisis. Unfortunately, until the President throws the full weight of the White House behind a unified, bipartisan effort to steer us out of this mess, I fear that furloughs will turn to layoffs, and a readiness crisis will turn to a readiness emergency."
