Impact assessment: How the sequester is affecting the geosciences

from American Geosciences Institute

The federal government's discretionary spending accounts will be cut by $85 billion through the rest of the fiscal year. These across-the-board spending reductions, known as the sequester, began March 1 and were first proposed in 2011 as a penalty so severe they would force Congress to work together to solve the nation's deficit woes. Unfortunately, no agreement on a package of replacement cuts or additional revenue in time to avoid the sequester has been made. We now face substantial cuts to critical programs and want to know how the sequester is affecting geoscientists.

AEG Editors' note: In actual fact, the sequester does not reduce federal spending as implied in this article but rather reduces the increase in federal spending. more
