Washington D.C. – House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Adam Smith released the following statement in response to Secretary Hagel’s letter to Senators Levin and Inhofe:

 

“I have consistently stated that sequestration is damaging. Secretary Hagel’s letter to Senators Levin and Inhofe echoes that sentiment regarding sequestration’s impact on defense, and it points out that, if Congress does not act, sequestration will continue to damage military readiness. Congress must end sequestration and pass a reasonable approach to reducing federal deficits.”
