Stephen Daggett, Defense Spending, and More from CRS

04.23.12 | 1 min read | Text by Steven Aftergood

We note with sadness the death last week of Congressional Research Service analyst Stephen Daggett, who tutored generations of Members and congressional staff in the intricacies of U.S. military spending.  Although I did not know him personally, I read his work and learned from him for many years.  Our condolences to his family and his CRS colleagues.

A new report co-authored by Mr. Daggett, presumably his final contribution, is FY2013 Defense Budget Request: Overview and Context, April 20, 2012

Other new and updated CRS reports that Congress has not made available to the public include the following.
