The non-discretionary, mandated government-wide cuts known as sequestration are set to take effect on March 1st if there is not another agreement in place on the mandated debt reduction of $85 billion.
The FAA will be forced to cut $483 million – 5% - from the ops budget (other budgets lines will also take the 5% cuts). Being that more than 90% of the operations budget is employees, in order to meet the cuts, the FAA is expecting to institute across the board rolling furloughs for the remainder of the fiscal year.
"Unlike previous furloughs we do not expect that any furloughs will be repaid"
