We note with sadness the death last week of Congressional Research Service analyst Stephen Daggett, who tutored generations of Members and congressional staff in the intricacies of U.S. military spending. Although I did not know him personally, I read his work and learned from him for many years. Our condolences to his family and his CRS colleagues.
A new report co-authored by Mr. Daggett, presumably his final contribution, is FY2013 Defense Budget Request: Overview and Context, April 20, 2012
Other new and updated CRS reports that Congress has not made available to the public include the following.
Iraq: Politics, Governance, and Human Rights, April 19, 2012
Economic Growth and the Unemployment Rate, April 18, 2012
Multilateral Development Banks: Overview and Issues for Congress, April 18, 2012
