CBO to Delay Release of Sequestration Report

In general, after a session of Congress ends, the Congressional Budget Office is required to issue a report that provides estimates of the limits (or 'caps') on discretionary budget authority and that states whether enacted legislation for the current fiscal year has exceeded those caps. However, for this year's report to be complete and as useful to the Congress as possible, the House and Senate Budget Committees have asked CBO to delay publishing the report until it can fully account for the funding provided in all 12 annual appropriation bills.

Theresa Gullo is CBO's Assistant Director for Budget Analysis.
