The Biden administration’s skinny budget should release soon for fiscal year 2022. It will include topline numbers for defense spending. Budget watchers expect that number to stay flat over the next few years.

  • Mark Cancian, Senior Advisor in the International Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said the upcoming defense budget will probably pose the greatest challenge to the Army, as many budgeteers and strategists want to cut Army end strength to fund other priorities.
  • Cancian said the Biden administration will set a new shipbuilding plan that will likely look like a smaller version of what Secretary Esper described at the end of the Trump administration.
  • Commandant General Berger’s vision for the Marine Corps, Force Design 2030, is still likely to be supported if budgets continue to shrink, said Cancian.
