More Bad Budget News For NASA

Sequsetration Order For FY 2018, White House

"By the authority vested in me as President by the laws of the United States of America, and in accordance with section 251A of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act (the "Act"), as amended, 2 U.S.C. 901a, I hereby order that, on October 1, 2017, direct spending budgetary resources for fiscal year 2018 in each non-exempt budget account be reduced by the amount calculated by the Office of Management and Budget in its report to the Congress of May 23, 2017. All sequestrations shall be made in strict accordance with the requirements of section 251A of the Act and the specifications of the Office of Management and Budget's report of May 23, 2017, prepared pursuant to section 251A(9) of the Act."

Keith's note: What does this mean? My first guess is that NASA will find itself with a budget somewhere between the FY 2017 budget enacted by Congress and what Trump has proposed for FY 2018. It is almost a certainty that this will undermine the budget levels achieved for FY 2017. Two steps forward, one step back.
