washingtonexaminer.com reports: The Pentagon on Monday unveiled a fiscal 2019 budget request to Congress that would buy 10 new Navy ships and add 15,600 troops above this year’s authorized levels.
The request is part of the Trump administration’s second annual budget and would provide the Pentagon $617 billion in its base budget and $69 billion for its overseas operations account.
The funding represents a major hike for the military in 2019 and comes after Congress reached a deal to raise a $549 billion defense spending cap. The figures released Monday do not include the Department of Energy and some other non-Pentagon defense spending, which if included bring the total national defense request to $716 billion.
As part of Donald Trump's infrastructure plan, there is over $2 billion set aside for the building of a new, state-of-the-art headquarters for the FBI.
This brings the total amount of money the FBI has for a new building to over $3.3 billion.
