USET: BIA and IHS to take big hits with budget sequestration

Filed Under: National | Politics
More on: bia, dc, ihs, meetings, uset
     

"Fiscal issues and sequestration of federal expenditures are high on the priority list for many leaders and policy makers in Washington, DC including the White House and visiting Tribal Nations this week. White House Deputy Associate Counsel Charles Galbraith says addressing sequestration is a top priority for President Obama. Discussions about critical issues, including sequestration, are being held today at the National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) in conjunction with the United South and Eastern Tribes, Incorporated (USET) Impact Week meeting. The session, titled “A Look Ahead at the 113th Congress and Potential Impacts on Indian Country” is being hosted by Drinker, Biddle, & Reath, LLP, with sponsorship by USET.

Sequestration will be very harmful for Indian Country according to Virginia Eighth District Representative Jim Moran. Representative Moran is the ranking member on the House Interior Appropriations Sub-Committee, which oversees budgeting for the Indian Health Service and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, among other programs and departments. Moran thinks it is more likely that sequestration will take place than that Congress will pass a new budget law that would replace sequestration and provide for better targeted reductions as well as new sources of Federal revenue."
