House Introduces Bill to Halt Sequestration and Prevent Cuts to Defense Spending for 10 Years

October 1, 2012

On September 13, 2012, Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-CO) introduced the “Sequestration Prevention Act of 2012” (H.R. 6389). If passed, the bill would fully repeal the sequestration provision of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 and prevent all impending cuts to defense spending over the next 10 years. The bill would also repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Pub. L. No. 111-148) and reduce the federal workforce by 10 percent. In addition, the bill would establish a Medicaid block grant program that gives each participating state the authority to administer the program. The bill was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary.
