Notice of availability of the OMB Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for FY 2019.


OMB is issuing its Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2019 to report on compliance of enacted 2019 discretionary appropriations legislation with the discretionary caps. The report finds that enacted appropriations are within the discretionary caps for 2019. As a result, a sequestration of discretionary budget authority is not required in 2019.


Effective Date: March 4, 2019. Section 254 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, 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 2019 Continuing Resolution delayed the release of this report until 15 days after the 2019 Continuing Resolution expired on February 15, 2019.


The OMB Sequestration Reports to the President and Congress is available on-line on the OMB home page at:​omb/​legislative/​sequestration-reports-orders/​.
