OMB Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2013
Public Law 112-25, the Budget Control Act of 2011 amended the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (BBEDCA) by reinstating the discretionary spending limits that had expired after 2002. These limits were further revised by P.L. 112-240, the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA). Section 254 of BBEDCA requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to issue a Final Sequestration Report after Congress ends a session to determine whether or not a sequestration of discretionary budget authority is required based on OMB scoring of enacted appropriations legislation against those limits. ATRA, however, delayed the release of this report. Based on its scoring of enacted 2013 appropriations, OMB has determined that a sequestration of discretionary budget authority pursuant to section 251 of BBEDCA is not required. As required, these estimates rely on the same economic and technical assumptions used in the President's 2013 Budget, which the Administration transmitted to the Congress on February 13, 2012.
