Section 254 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 requires the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to issue a Sequestration Update Report by August 20th of each year. For fiscal year 2019, the report finds enacted appropriations to be at or below the caps after accounting for enacted supplemental appropriations. For fiscal years 2020 and 2021, the report formally updates the caps for the revisions enacted in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019. The report also finds that actions to date by the House of Representatives for the 12 annual appropriations bills for fiscal year 2020 would breach the non-defense cap under OMB estimates if they were enacted into law. The Senate has not yet begun consideration of its 2020 appropriations bills; therefore, an evaluation of Senate compliance cannot be made at this time. Finally, the report contains OMB's Preview Estimate of the Disaster Relief Funding Adjustment for FY 2020.
