    Had some budget stuff to do so while I was there I thought I'd collect some medical "numbers" for the crew to ponder.

    These numbers are from the presidents budget and are ~6% above the budget caps or sequestration numbers. Source: http://www.dot.gov/sites/dot.gov/files/docs/FY2016-BudgetEstimate-FAA.pdf

    Mostly for CAMI it's business as usual next year. Sorry for the formatting, I can't figure out how to get tabs in this thing.
