  • New Administration Report: Perkins Would Be Cut $92 Million Under Sequestration

    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!
