Sequestration Central (Center for Effective Government)

 

 

 

Across-the-board spending cuts, called  sequestration, are now in effect. Sequestration will cut domestic spending on things like education, national parks, air traffic control, and consumer safety protections by about 5 percent and most defense spending by 7.8 percent, according to OMB estimates (many entitlements, including Social Security and Medicaid, will be exempt).

This webpage is devoted to tracking both projected and actual impacts on affected federal programs. It includes original reports and analysis from the Center for Effective Government, as well as links to reports in the media and selected organizations.
