The U.S. Air Force would feel greater and potentially worse effects from a continuing resolution than a full-year budget for fiscal 2016, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James told Defense News in an interview published Sunday.

“A full-year [CR] or any form of a long-term CR would actually [be] less money than sequestration-level budgets in terms of our top-line number,” James told Defense News reporter Lara Seligman.

James also indicated that the measure could affect 50 of the service’s programs — 25 percent of which are major programs — and limit resources for service priorities such as the nuclear and cyber workforce expansion efforts.
