Pentagon details state-by-state furloughs
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The Pentagon has released figures showing the impact of the plan to furlough more than 700,000 civilian defense workers in order to deal with automatic budget cuts set to hit on March 1. The plan, which would involve one furlough day a week from late April through the end of the fiscal year in September, would save $4.6 billion in the United States and another $265 million overseas, for a total of $4.86 billion. States hit the hardest by the civilian defense worker furloughs are those that have a number of military facilities — and are neighbors of Washington, D.C., as well. Virginia would lose $660 million in payroll through the furloughs; California is next at $419 million, followed by Maryland at $359 million. Texas would lose payrolls valued at $290 million.
