Regardless of who wins and who loses this November, Congress and the president are going to have to move fast if they want to avoid sequestration. But just what is sequestration and how will it impact states? To answer that question, NCSL’s Jon Kuhl sat down with NCSL Senior Federal Affairs Counsel Michael Bird. Michael is a fiscal policy expert, and is the committee director of the NCSL Budgets and Revenue Committee.
