Linda Springer, former OMB Controller and former OPM Director, joined In Depth host Francis Rose on the day of the earthquake that rocked the D.C. region.

  • Budget-cutting at agencies across government.
  • The decision-making process of what and how to make cuts.
  • Adjusting to the "new normal" of austere budgets.
