CARDIN TO TALK TO ABOUT WHAT

SEQUESTRATION WILL MEAN FOR MARYLAND’S

SMALL BUSINESS COMMUNITY

Sequestration to take effect March 1st; Senator to Hold Roundtable Discussion in Prince George’s County

 

On Monday, February 25, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) will host a roundtable discussion for Maryland small businesses titled:Sequestration: What It Will Mean for Maryland’s Small Business Community.  Many small businesses in Maryland depend on the federal government for contracts and other business.  On March 1, sequestration – automatic, across-the-board spending cuts – will begin to take effect.  Unless Congress acts, sequestration requires $42.7 billion in cuts to defense programs and another $42.7 billion in cuts to non-defense programs over the next year.  Cuts of this magnitude will have a profound effect on Maryland and our entire nation.
