    Under President Obama’s current spending proposal all of our country’s military services will see their budgets increase — all, that is, except the Coast Guard. Under the president’s proposal, the Coast Guard’s budget will decline by 3 percent, to $10.1 billion, smaller than many medium-sized agencies under the other services.

    It’s a tragically misguided considering the increasingly critical role the Coast Guard plays in protecting the national security interests of the United States — and considering that many much less vital military programs have been spared.

    Asking the Coast Guard to slash its budget by 3 percent and forcing it to reduce its personnel and ships, while allowing the Pentagon to spend tens of billions of dollars on unnecessary and troubled programs, will only further degrade our national security.

    Therefore, any effort at Coast Guard modernization, first and foremost, ensure robust funding for this most critical of Services.

    The Coast Guard deserves quick resolution to this bill. The House did its part in 2009. In its haste to “do something” quick after the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the Senate passed this bill… substituting its own S. 1194 text instead of using the House-passed text. When the Senate could have passed the House version and had it ready to sign by the President in days, now it must go and sit in conference committee.

    The Coast Guard’s Modernization program hangs in the lurch, awaiting the legal mandate to complete it, just as the service is dealing with what could be the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. Also, important reforms relating to the Deepwater program remain unenacted.

    The House version was a much more comprehensive bill, also. Missing from the Senate version are updates to:
    -The Coast Guard Academy appointment process
    -The Coast Guard’s Marine Safety program
    -Commercial fishing vessel safety
    -Cruise vessel safety
    -Mariner protection against pirates
    -Port security
