Looming furloughs at other sequester-sparked disruptions have been discussed for months now, but White House warnings got a bit more specific over the weekend.
Administration officials held a Feb. 24 conference call with reporters, and said the Office of Management and Budget is working with agencies to get to "the degree of specificity" about sequester cuts that the Pentagon has shared. In the meantime, they released fact sheets detailing the impact in each state:
Alabama | Alaska | Arizona | Arkansas | California | Colorado | Connecticut | Delaware | District of Columbia | Florida | Georgia | Hawaii | Idaho | Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Kansas | Kentucky | Louisiana | Maine | Maryland | Massachusetts | Michigan | Minnesota | Mississippi | Missouri | Montana | Nebraska | Nevada | New Hampshire | New Jersey | New Mexico | New York | North Carolina | North Dakota | Ohio | Oklahoma | Oregon | Pennsylvania | Rhode Island | South Carolina | South Dakota | Tennessee | Texas | Utah | Vermont | Virginia | Washington | West Virginia | Wisconsin | Wyoming | Puerto Rico
There is growing consensus that a deal to avert the March 1 cuts is unlikely. The odds of getting a steady stream of details on the coming disruptions, however? For both planning and political purposes, it's almost a sure thing.
