The Space Force’s 2018 budget proposal will be “bold,” according to the service’s senior general, and will further the Pentagon’s pursuit of a better satellite infrastructure that is more impervious to enemy strikes or other interruptions. The unveiling of President Joe Biden’s fiscal year 2023 budget proposal is keenly anticipated by defense experts. Annual presidential budget presentations to Congress are usually made in February, but according to sources, the next one might be postponed until March. Meanwhile, Congress has failed to pass a full-year funding bill for the fiscal year 2022, and federal agencies are functioning under a continuing resolution that will run until February 18. The Space Force has proposed $17.4 billion in spending for 2022, up 13.1 percent from 2021.
