Sequester Impact on Indiana, March 1st

Share this post

Now just days away from sweeping budget cuts known as sequestration, ABC News reports they'll hit every corner of government. The White House is circulating 50 lists of budget cuts in states where civilian jobs in the defense industry and some school money would be slashed. ABC's Ann Compton at the White House reports there are no active negotiations here as Congress returns to write a list of less painful cuts.
On the Indiana list, the White House says some examples this year are... the loss of 12-point-four million dollars for about 150 staff, aides and teachers who help kids with disabilities... about a-thousand fewer work study jobs for college students... and the loss of about 262-thousand dollars in grants for crime prevention and prosecution
