As part of the Coalition for Health Funding, DHPE’s Executive Director Susan Goekler attended a meeting with representatives from the White House, Office of Management and Budget, and the Department of Health and Human Services. Those present shared our need for specifics of sequestration’s cuts to keep our members informed. The Administration is still working out the details of how much the cuts will be. The mandated % reduction will be for the annual budget. Since the fiscal year is more than half over, the % reduction in the remainder of the fiscal year might be double the stated rate.
