Administration Doesn't Object in SAP to MCA Cuts

May 21, 2008

Yesterday I blogged about the hatchet taken to the MCA by Senator Gregg and others in the supplemental bill. I had hoped that the Administration would push back hard in its Statement of Administration Policy, but it did not. The bill will now head into conference where I assume the Administration hopes the House Appropriations Committee will once again fight hard for the President's flagship development program. Puts them in a rather awkward position, no?
