Shortchanged

The Air Force revamped the force structure plans it announced last year and told Congress what the new bill would be to retain more aircraft. When Congress passed the Fiscal 2013 defense budget, it included additional funding for USAF—$504 million. Unfortunately, that is nearly $100 million less than the service needed. Now USAF has to find an additional $98.3 million to fully cover the costs of the restructuring. The service lays out the numbers in this table, released to the public on March 28, 2013. (See the Daily Report's Implementation Plan Details Force Structure Changes from March 29.)
