The White House Office of Management and Budget has sent Congress a revised fiscal year 2020 budget, noting it omitted several defense items from the initial request submitted in February, including appropriations language for a $99 million Joint Urgent Operational Needs Fund.

Additionally, a letter from President Trump accompanying the revised budget states the administration does not need a special amendment to restore funding to refuel the aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman, despite earlier plans to retire it.
