EPA Letter Responding To Senator Mikulski on Sequestration

EPA responded to a letter from Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski that requested information on how budgetary 'sequestration' would affect the agency.  EPA responded that:
"Sequestration will force us to make cuts we believe will directly undercut our Congressionally-mandated mission of assuring Americans have clean air, clean water and clean land.  I am enclosing our preliminary assessment of some of the impacts of sequestration, should it be implemented.  Our assessment highlights a number of immediate impacts to programs, people and services."
