To view today's additional new release (Version 2.60) of the detailed reports with 2011 data showing the 18% Sequestration cuts for all U.S. states and territories, counties and cities go to http://forthecommondefense.org/reports .
According to the Aerospace Industries Association, “Four out of five likely voters in critical battleground states want our leaders in Washington, D.C. to find an alternative to “sequestration” budget cuts before the November elections take place, according to a Harris Interactive online poll.”
The Congressional District Reports are a tool to help local officials and businesses prepare for the possible impact of job losses and harm to local communities from the sequestration budget cuts. The Congressional District Reports provide a 2011 baseline to see how congressional districts may be affected by the planned across-the-board sequestration cuts in the 2013 defense budget. These sequestration defense budget cuts will be an estimated total of 18% or more when combined with earlier budget cuts.

These Congressional District Reports show 2011 defense contracts for businesses in each congressional district (and bordering zip codes), including the contract dollar amount, contractor business name, address and phone number, the contractor industry classification, and whether the business is a small or disadvantaged business, woman-owned, minority-owned or veteran-owned. The Congressional District Reports are provided as a spreadsheet file for each congressional district. They include contractor businesses in zip codes that are exclusively within the congressional district, as well as businesses in zip codes shared with bordering congressional districts.
To build each Congressional District Report, contract information was derived from public data at the Federal Procurement Data System ( https://www.fpds.gov) based on queries from http://www.governmentcontractswon.com, and combined with public zip code data linked to congressional districts.
