Department: Government & Policy
Keywords: sequestration, universities, federal budget cuts, research

Universities have been warning lawmakers about the harmful effects of across-the-board federal budget cuts called sequestration since they were first proposed in 2011. The Budget Control Act, which will cut nearly $1 trillion in discretionary spending over 10 years, went into effect on March 1.
