Sequestration is a budget technique characterized by the implementation of automatic mandatory spending cuts if deficit levels exceed a certain threshold. The Budget Control Act of 2011 utilized sequestration to encourage Congress to cut federal spending by 1.2 billion dollars. If Congress fails to make the specified funding cuts, sequestration will kick in and automatic cuts will be made to the federal budget. A good portion of the slated cuts will come from the national security budget.
