The committee heard testimony on the cost of the Persian Gulf war from Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell. The Secretary and Chairman also introduced a budget proposal for the Department of Defense for fiscal year 1992. Secretary Cheney said the budget proposal prepared by the Department of Defense was based on the improved relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, and thus contained lower levels of spending which would have to be changed in case of a breakdown in U.S.-Soviet relations. He said the budget proposal planned for a reduction in military personnel over the next five years, resulting in a force in 1996 that would be 25 percent smaller than that in 1990. close
