Type: Notice
Date: 2016-08-25
Agency: Management and Budget Office, Executive Office of the President
OMB is issuing the OMB Sequestration Update Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2017 to report on the status of the discretionary caps and on the compliance of pending discretionary appropriations legislation with those caps. For fiscal year 2016, the report finds enacted appropriations to be within the spending limits. The report also finds that 2016 supplemental funding amounts for Zika virus response included in Divisions B and D of the pending Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2017 and Zika Response and Preparedness Conference Report would not breach the 2016 limits if enacted. For fiscal year 2017, the report finds that, if the current limits remain unchanged, under OMB's estimates of actions to date by the House of Representatives for the 12 annual appropriations bills would result in a sequestration of approximately $17 million in defense programs and $775 million in non- defense programs, respectively. The report finds that actions by the Senate for both categories are in compliance with the current spending limits. Finally, the report also contains OMB's Preview Estimate of the Disaster Relief Funding Adjustment for FY 2017.
