Rogers: Group secretly working on budget fix [View all]

Source: Livingston County Press

A bipartisan committee of Congress is meeting in secret to prevent members and supporters of both major parties from influencing how to avoid automatic budget cuts Jan. 1, U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, (8th MI)R-Brighton, said last week.

By law, the president Jan. 2 will be required to order the automatic cuts, a process known as sequestration, if at least $1.2 trillion in budget-deficit reduction isn't identified by Congress by that time.

Among the victims of the cuts would be the U.S. military.

The Budget Control Act of 2011 followed the failure of a congressional supercommittee to outline $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions over the next decade.
