White House Report Claims Sequestration Will Affect Federal Department That No Longer Exists

8dffNDIC1 600x215 White House Report Claims Sequestration Will Affect Federal Department That No Longer Exists

If you want a thorough agency-by-agency rundown of the budget
cuts sequestration would deliver, the Office of Management and
Budget has you covered. In compliance with The Sequestration
Transparency Act of 2012, ;the
OMB sent a detailed report to Congress in September 2012. But
there’s a small problem with the report: One of the cuts it warns
against would affect an agency that no longer exists–and didn’t
exist when the OMB sent its report to congress. ;
The first line item on page 121 of the OMB’s September 2012
report says that under sequestration the National Drug Intelligence
Center would lose $2 million of its $20 million budget. While
that’s slightly more than 8.2 percent (rounding error or scare
tactic?), the bigger problem is that the National Drug Intelligence
Center shuttered its
doors on June 15, 2012–three months before the OMB issued its
report to Congress. ;
Here’s a screenshot of the OMB’s report: ;

Here’s a screenshot of the DOJ website’s announcement that the
NDIC had closed: ;

Might there be other errors in the OMB’s report?
