Budget Era Could Mean Fewer Air Force Programs

January 6, 2013

The Air Force Materiel Command’s top leader said it’s unlikely the military branch will launch the number of new programs it once did in an era of budget austerity and with the impact of potential automatic, across-the-board defense cuts still unknown.

Those impacts won’t be known until Congress acts to resolve budget sequestration, said Gen. Janet Wolfenbarger, AFMC commander.

“Certainly, there’s some disappointment at not reaching resolution and having another two months of uncertainty,” she said.

The Air Force’s first female four-star general spoke about the fiscal woes and other issues facing the Air Force in an interview with the Dayton Daily News at AFMC headquarters at Wright-Patterson.
