EXPECT SEQUESTRATION TO HIT MUCH HARDER IN 2014, REPORT SAYS - November 25, 2013
One-time fixes that lessened the blow in 2013 are no longer available.
By Eric Katz, Government Executive
Less severe cuts, deferred costs and temporary solutions mitigated sequestration’s effect in its inaugural year, but will not help lessen the impact in 2014, according to a new report.
The Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, said the tactics federal agencies used to reduce furloughs in fiscal 2013 are, in many cases, no longer available. In fact, they will largely accentuate the severity of the cuts this time around.
