Excerpt from Leading the Past Week -

By the end of the week, rumors were circulating that a deal that would modestly raise the $967 billion discretionary spending level under the sequester by $34 billion to $1.001 trillion for FY2014, with the increase being distributed evenly across domestic and defense spending. While this would still be a decrease in defense spending from the last fiscal year, it would be $17 billion more than anticipated under FY2014 sequester levels.
