First it was the “fiscal cliff,” now “sequestration” is the buzzword of the hour surrounding Congress and the President. If you’re not yet up to speed on sequestration, the Congressional Research Service’s Report, Budget “Sequestration” and Selected Program Exemptions and Special Rules, can help. CRS Reports like this one are prepared for members and committees of Congress and can be a good way to get up to speed on current issues before Congress. While not released directly to the public, many of these CRS Reports find their way out onto the internet and may be useful to you as you research.
