Sequestered cuts keep K Street on high alert
The Hill

A variety of interests lobbied on the dreaded budget sequestration last quarter, according to lobbying disclosure records.

Defense contractors, healthcare groups and associations representing everything from housing to education reported that they were monitoring, and in some cases opposing, the budget cuts that are set to begin next year. The cuts were set in motion by the agreement to lift the debt ceiling last summer.
