10-05-2012 Sequester Report Released: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) released its report to Congress on the effect of the across-the-board cuts should Congress and the administration fail to craft an alternative deficit reduction package.
OMB determined that the child support enforcement (CSE) program would NOT be subject to the cuts. CSE joins other entitlements such as Medicaid, SNAP, IV-E, TANF, and SSI as programs protected from the cuts which will occur on January 2, 2013 if no agreement is reached on an alternative.
Each domestic program subject to sequester would be cut from 7.6% for mandatory programs not subject to the appropriations process (e.g., SSBG) to 8.2% for all other discretionary programs.
The determination was made in the OMB Report Pursuant to the Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012 (P. L. 112–155)
