a. for info
b.        A 7.8% cut in all discretionary funding. 
c.        Fairly high likelihood that this may go into effect because the legislation is already in place and unless the legislature does something it will automatically go into effect.  Since after the election, the Congress will be lame duck and they would have to act by January 2, 2013

e.        It is not clear when these cuts will become effective and no one is discussing this locally or at the State. 
f.        All the funding being used in our Plans is subject to change due to Act 10's status and this Sequestration "cliff".
