Abstract:

The Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program CSDP is based on Section 1412 of the 1986 Defense Authorization Act Public Law 99-145 that directs the Department of Defense to destroy the complete unitary chemical stockpile by 30 September 1994 in conjunction with the production of binary chemical weapons. The Fiscal Year 1989 Defense Authorization Act Public Law 100-456 extended the program completion date to 30 April 1997. The Fiscal Year 1992 Defense Authorization Act Public Law 102-190 extended the program completion date to 31 July 1999. Estimates contained in this budget submission reflect a disposal completion date of the year 2003. The latest change to the program completion date is due to Congressional constraints in the FY 1993 Authorization Act, Appropriations Act, and affordability consideration in light of the Congressional constraints. This schedule is consistent with the new program completion data December 2004 established by the Fiscal Year 1993 Defense Authorization Act Public Law 102-484.
