Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon (R-CA) on Wednesday cheered the House's
passage of H.R. 5872, The Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, which calls
for a detailed report on sequestration implementation by Jan. 2, 2013. "By
requiring the administration to tell the American people exactly how they
intend to implement sequestration, we will hopefully incentivize all
stakeholders to find a solution as soon as possible," he said. "Republicans in
the House and Senate have already put forward their solutions." Senate Majority
Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) last week accused GOP leaders of refusing to make hard
decisions required for a compromise.
