Funding of research, develop- ment, test and evaluation (RDT&E) is projected to grow from $9.3 billion in FY 1989 to $10.2 billion in FY 1990. Much of the increase is asso- ciated with increased spending for tactical programs which are en- tering full scale engineering devel- opment.
The Navy budget for military construction will decline from $1.6 billion in FY 1989 to $1.1 billion in
FY 1990. The FY 1990 request con- tains funding for the strategic homeporting initiative—including $30.9 million for developing the
New York homeport, $33.5 million for Gulf Coast sites and $20.3 mil- lion for the Everett homeport. How- ever, a recent recommendation of the Base Closure Commission will likely result in lowered funding for
Gulf Coast sites.
