Jim Martin Table
March 22, 2013


The Jim Martin Table has been updated to reflect the final FY 2013 spending bill (H.R. 933) approved by Congress on March 21, 2013. The bill includes a combination of five new appropriations bills and a continuing resolution for the remaining areas. It adheres to the discretionary spending limits for FY 2013 ($1.043 trillion) adopted as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA; P.L. 112-25) and, as such, does not trigger the March 27, 2013 sequester. It does leave the March 1 sequester intact.

The package provides separate appropriations for Agriculture, Commerce-Justice-Science (CJS), Defense, Homeland Security, and Military Construction-Veterans Affairs. It includes across-the-board reductions in each of these five divisions as follows: discretionary security programs receive a 0.092% cut (including Homeland Security), nonsecurity discretionary programs in the Agriculture and Military Construction-Veteran Affairs divisions receive a 2.513% cut, and nonsecurity discretionary spending in the CJS division receives a 1.877% cut. For the most part, the remaining programs areas are funded at FY 2012 levels. The Jim Martin Table shows those figures included in the bill for major grant programs as well as the final post-March 1 sequester funding levels.
