Notice of availability of the OMB Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for FY 2017.


OMB is issuing its Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for FY 2017 to report on compliance of enacted 2017 discretionary appropriations legislation with the discretionary caps. The report finds that enacted appropriations are within the current law defense and non-defense discretionary limits for 2017; therefore, a sequestration of discretionary budget authority is not required. The report also finds that enacted supplemental appropriations for 2016 are within the 2016 caps.


Effective May 22, 2016. Section 254 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, as amended, requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to issue its Final Sequestration Report 15 calendar days after the end of a congressional session. With regard to this final report and to each of the three required sequestration reports, section 254(b) specifically states the following:

SUBMISSION AND AVAILABILITY OF REPORTS.—Each report required by this section shall be submitted, in the case of CBO, to the House of Representatives, the Senate and OMB and, in the case of OMB, to the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the President on the day it is issued. On the following day a notice of the report shall be printed in the Federal Register.

However, a provision in the 2017 Continuing Resolution, which was in place until May 5, 2017, delayed the release of this report until 15 days after Start Printed Page 23840the 2017 Continuing Resolution expired on May 5, 2017.
