White House Releases Sequestration Reports for Each State

Posted: Updated:

Congress has until Friday to agree on some huge spending cuts - or automatic cuts kick in.

The sequester would slash both domestic and military budgets.

The White House is releasing details on how the sequester would affect each individual state.

A report released Sunday night indicates Virginia would lose about $14 million in funding for primary and secondary education.

Around 190 teacher and aide jobs would be at risk.

More than $648 million in cuts will come from the military - mainly pay.

90,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed.
