You don’t need to be a budget expert to see what’s going to happen. The easiest cuts will be made first. No maintenance, travel or training. Projects will be slowed-down and then cancelled. Unspent pots of money will be seized. Contracts won’t be renewed and contractors will be laid off. The cuts won’t be guided by an agency’s mission but by what’s easiest to get the job done.
