Are you worried about sequestration? | #FedBuzz

Congressional Republicans and the Obama administration were in agreement on the main topic of a House Armed Services Committee Hearing: Neither wants the mandatory sequestration to go into effect at the end of the year.

Jeffrey D. Zients, acting director of the Office of Management and Budget, is advising that agencies should strike a balance between preparing for possible cuts while avoiding too much early action and causing a “self-sequester.”
