Obligating Year End Money

Allow "End of Year" money to remain unused at the end of the fiscal year without impacting the following years budget. Each August/September the military takes extrodinary measures to ensure Fiscal Year money is spent regardless of need. The concensus is that if money is not spent, it will be removed from next years budget. Millions are spent needlessly each at fiscal year end to ensure that next years budget is not cut.
