For example, the White House distributed a Nebraska “Fact Sheet” indicating that the sequester will cost the state $174,000 meant to upgrade its ability to respond to public health threats, $390,000 in grants to treat substance abuse and $51,000 for HIV testing. But the sheet provided no details on the accounts those amounts would be cut from.
