The Senate and House have released their budgets. And the Governor has released his budget priorities. What does it all mean and what's next? We'll help you decipher the complex budget lingo within these documents and what these budgets tell us about our affordable housing and homelessness priorities for this year.
We also have an update on what's been happening at the federal level. Sequestration has begun and we've only seen the beginning of the cuts that are steadily working their way through the budget pipeline and out into our communities. I'll talk about where the budget deal for FY13 landed, and how the current budget negotiations for FY14 are shaping up.
