Justice warns that 100,000 furloughs are possible
Automatic budget cuts could lead to furloughs for more than 100,000 Justice Department employees, a department spokeswoman told the Federal Times.
The furloughs, which would include FBI agents, trial attorneys and others, would last roughly five weeks, if the sequestration cuts take effect next January, according to the Times article.
Those budget cuts would cost the Justice Department about $2.1 billion in fiscal 2013 and the furloughs would affect nearly 90 percent of Justice's employees.
