Work: If sequestration comes back, military will be in trouble

With the two year sequestration reprieve that came from the Murray-Ryan budget deal last year, the Defense Department has begun to rebound from the automatic spending cuts, but that could all be for naught if those cuts come back next year, DoD Deputy Secretary Robert Work said at a Nov. 12 Center for Strategic and International Studies event. The budget deal expires at the end of fiscal 2015 and if sequestration is reinstated in full, it would cause major problems for the DoD, Work said at the event.

Sequestration caused decreased Coast Guard counternarcotic deep sea patrols

Faced with $200 million in mandatory cuts required by sequestration, the Coast Guard responded by decreasing drug interdiction efforts along ocean transit routes, Coast Guard Commandant Adm.

Sequestration will hit harder in 2014, CAP says

Sequestration will hit harder in fiscal 2014 than it did because cuts will be larger and one-time fixes that mitigated the impacts last year cannot be used again, a Nov. 21 Center for American Progress report says. Sequestration will cut $24 billion more in 2014 than it did in 2013, because Congress partially repealed the 2013 sequester in the American Taxpayer Relief Act, the report says.
