President Obama on Thursday announced he would ask Congress for $58.6 billion in war funding for the 2015 fiscal year.

A White House statement outlining the request for what is formally called the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) notes that it is $20.9 billion less than what had been figured in an earlier budget.
