The budget proposal released by the White House for 2014 does not take into account sequester, and it increases spending on Department of Veterans Affairs, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Energy and Treasury departments. The Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Transportation Department would see cuts. It's unclear what will happen with sequestration, but even if it remains in place, caps for sequester spending grow 1% to 2% annually.
