OMB is issuing the Sequestration Update Report to the President and Congress for FY 2014 to report on the status of pending discretionary appropriations legislation and compliance with the discretionary caps. The report finds that unless the discretionary limits are restored to the levels agreed to in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, OMB's estimates of House action for the 12 annual appropriations bills show that a sequestration of approximately $47.9 billion in discretionary programs in the defense (or revised security) category would be required. Similarly, OMB's estimates of appropriations action by the Senate indicate that a sequestration of approximately $54.1 billion in discretionary programs in the defense category and $34.3 billion in discretionary programs in the non-defense (or revised nonsecurity) category would be required. The report also contains OMB's Preview Estimate of the Disaster Relief Funding Adjustment for FY 2014.
