Shortly after midnight on Saturday, the Senate passed a six-month Continuing Resolution (CR) that will take effect next week, the beginning of Fiscal Year (FY) 2013, and will last until March 27. The House has already approved the short-term measure that will essentially keep funding on autopilot until the spring. We are pleased to report that the CR provides level-funding for Perkins!

On Friday, the Office of Management and Budget at the White House released a new report that examines how federal funding might be impacted by sequestration. Without congressional intervention, sequestration is scheduled to go into effect on January 2, 2013. According to the report, all non-defense discretionary (NDD) programs that are not exempt from sequestration will be cut 8.2 percent. This means that the Perkins stands to lose approximately $92 million in Fiscal Year 2013 alone!
