From the statement of the representative of the lower chamber of the American Congress:
It is necessary to establish a certain new term in order to reduce the risks from loss of funds provided from the federal budget. Thus, the money will not be wasted.
At the Pentagon itself, the appropriations committee is accused of that it often delays the allocation of funds for specific programs, which leads to a loss of time and the need to force events related to the expenditure side of the budget.
