The Fiscal Cliff: Why the Budget Control Act and Sequestration Make For the 'Perfect Storm'

The Budget Control Act and Sequestration, along with several other budgetary issues facing Congress, creates the "perfect storm" as it relates to the reconciliation of the federal budget. The ultimate resolution of these issues will have a significant impact on both the federal government and on American cities, towns, state governments and the private sector. This OnDemand Webinar will explain, in detail, the Budget Control Act and Sequestration, how it works and how it impacts the federal budget. In addition, several other budgetary issues face Congress that could significantly change sequestration and its ultimate impact. These issues will be briefly discussed, along with possible Congressional action addressing them. These actions will be categorized in a series of potential scenarios, based upon possible outcomes of the November 2012 election, and their impact to the audience discussed. At the conclusion of this OnDemand Webinar, you will better understand the Budget Control Act and Sequestration, how it may likely be resolved and implemented, and how it will impact your respective businesses or entities.
