Abstract : This Highlights Book is designed to provide a summary of the FY 1998/FY 1999 Department of the Navy budget to assist members of Congress and their staffs in their review of the President's request. FY 1998 marks an important transition year for the Department of the Navy We will be well embarked on our recapitalization strategy to dedicate the increasing resource levels necessary to provide modern, capable platforms and systems for tomorrow's Navy-Marine Corps team. At the same time, we will only then be reaching the end of our projected resource downslope, and will begin maintaining an essentially level financing profile beyond FY 1998. This budget attempts to negotiate the path from the point the Congress has led us to in FY 1997, through the necessary reforms and efficiencies critical to long-term affordability and to the continued satisfaction of our core warfighting requirements within the President's plan for Defense.
