Report details effects of across-the-board cuts on non-defense discretionary (NDD) programs

On July 25, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) released a detailed analysis of the impact of sequestration on dozens of health, education, and labor programs in 2013. The report includes state level information on funding reductions, service reductions, and lost jobs. The calculations are based on the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) estimated 7.8% reduction for NDD programs. The cuts are scheduled to take effect under the Budget Control Act in January of 2013 unless Congress changes the law. The report includes estimates for special education grants to states, preschool State Grants, and grants for infants and families.
