The Department of Defense (DoD) never requests funds for the National Guard and Reserve Equipment Account. This is not an account that is part of the DoD budget but is added as an account each year by Congress. The House and Senate authorizes additional funds for National Guard and Reserve equipment because of the significant shortages they see as a result of the DoD budget not requesting enough equipment funds for the Reserve Component.
The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 authorized restoration of procurement, operations and maintenance, and personnel to the A-10 program. The budget will need to appropriate the same amounts or they can reduce or add to these amounts.
The conference report agreed to these changes to what the House and Senate had previously placed in their versions of the NDAA.
