Sequester Exemptions

Sequester Exemptions

Politico reports, “Congress has been chipping away at sequestration with carve-outs for meat inspectors, air traffic controllers and troops’ tuition assistance. But for many defense contractors, the dull impact of the across-the-board cuts has led to a kind of passive resignation about their effects. Besides the public campaign to restore tuition assistance for active service members – not something industry is particularly interested in – there have been no efforts for further sequester carve-outs.” MORE GROUPS PLOT TO DODGE SEQUESTER CUTS National Journal writes, “Now, with two sequester adjustments—the FAA and meat inspectors—on the books, other special-interest groups, unions, and lobbyists are planning to rev up their efforts to undo the cuts bit by bit or, in this case, by a few billion dollars here or there. The actions of the FAA in the past week, alongside airline groups and unions, offer a playbook for others to use as they too seek exemptions.”
