In episode 29 of the Aerospace Advantage, The Rendezvous, join host John Baum as he speaks to members of the Mitchell Institute team about how Congress is responding to the Air Force and Space Force budget submissions. As you know, the Administration submits a budget request, but the actual dollars that the services will see are determined by Congress. And that is largely driven by the defense committees in the House and Senate. So whether talking about specific programs like the F-35 and GBSD, Space Force priorities, readiness issues, or individual Member perspectives, this episode covers a broad range of important air and space topics that have been dominating recent Congressional defense hearings.
