(Bloomberg) — White House will submit on Thursday its war-funding request for 2015, according to two officials.

Request will include $1 billion for European Reassurance Initiative, $5 billion for a new counter-terrorism fund, over $50 billion for maintaining 9,800 troops in Afghanistan and other locations, as well as equipment repair and upgrades

NOTE: Last week, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said the new request would be “substantially smaller” than the $79 billion placeholder proposed earlier this year
