The Defense Spending by State Fiscal Year 2013 report examines U.S. defense spending in FY 2013 at the state and local levels for the 50 states and Washington, D.C.
After increasing by more than 60% from FY 2001 to 2011, national defense spending is expected to decline 27% from FY 2011 to 2018 in real terms according to Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2014. Sequestration went into effect in March 2013 and required across-the-board cuts to defense and non-defense programs from FY 2013 to 2021. Over this period, defense spending will be reduced by a total of $454 billion.
The impact of these cuts depends in part on the number of defense personnel and amount of defense contract revenue in each state and region. This report highlights factors, such as the regional expenditures from military bases or private contractors, which can be used to evaluate each state's potential exposure to projected declines in defense spending.
