Groups urge balanced Approach to Federal Budget Cuts
A coalition of about 3,000 organizations representing education, health and other groups on Thursday sent a letter to the U.S. Congress, asking lawmakers to prevent deep cuts that would affect all areas of federal government. The cuts will occur in January, unless Congress acts against the sequestration cuts. "We strongly urge a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to (nondefense discretionary) programs, which have already done their part to reduce the deficit," reads the letter from the coalition, which includes the Council for Exceptional Children.
