Jim Martin Tables

The Jim Martin table is an homage to Jim Martin, a long-time director of federal relations at the National Governors Association and a big supporter of FFIS in its early days. He requested the table because he wanted to show changes in federal funding for major programs on one sheet of paper. We’re told he carried it wherever he went, including Washington, DC’s metro, where he was seen distributing it to anyone who was interested. Alas, Jim is gone but his eponymous table lives on.

Jim Martin Table: Congress Passes Final FY 2013 Appropriations

Jim Martin Table
March 22, 2013

 

The Jim Martin Table has been updated to reflect the final FY 2013 spending bill (H.R. 933) approved by Congress on March 21, 2013. The bill includes a combination of five new appropriations bills and a continuing resolution for the remaining areas. It adheres to the discretionary spending limits for FY 2013 ($1.043 trillion) adopted as part of the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA; P.L. 112-25) and, as such, does not trigger the March 27, 2013 sequester. It does leave the March 1 sequester intact.

The package provides separate appropriations for Agriculture, Commerce-Justice-Science (CJS), Defense, Homeland Security, and Military Construction-Veterans Affairs. It includes across-the-board reductions in each of these five divisions as follows: discretionary security programs receive a 0.092% cut (including Homeland Security), nonsecurity discretionary programs in the Agriculture and Military Construction-Veteran Affairs divisions receive a 2.513% cut, and nonsecurity discretionary spending in the CJS division receives a 1.877% cut. For the most part, the remaining programs areas are funded at FY 2012 levels. The Jim Martin Table shows those figures included in the bill for major grant programs as well as the final post-March 1 sequester funding levels.

Jim Martin Table: House Passes CR for Remainder of FY 2013

Jim Martin Table
March 8, 2013

 

The Jim Martin Table has been updated to reflect the continuing resolution (CR) passed by the House on March 6, 2013, which would fund federal programs through the remainder of FY 2013. The House CR funds most discretionary programs at FY 2012 levels with a small across-the-board reduction. The across-the-board reductions (0.098% for nonsecurity programs and 0.109% for security programs) would bring total spending down to meet the FY 2013 discretionary funding caps included in the Budget Control Act (BCA). In addition, the House CR funds most mandatory programs at current-law levels. The House CR does not include any provision to reverse the March 1, 2013 sequester. These cuts are calculated by applying the percentage reductions (5.0% for nondefense discretionary programs and 5.1% for nondefense mandatory programs) to FY 2013 funding in place on March 1, 2013 (the first CR).
