ABSTRACT
The article offers information on a reduction plan developed by the U.S. Air Force Space Command (AFSPC) that would collect 508 million U.S. dollars in reductions to its fiscal year 2013. According to chief General of AFSPC William Shelton, the reduction plan reduces the operations and maintenance (O&M) budget due to sequestration-related budget cuts. It also mentions that AFSPC is planning to deduct the funding for all command development and procurement programs.
