Pentagon Warns Governors of Sequestration’s Impact on States

March 4, 2013

Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter warned governors that across-the-board federal cuts from sequestration could have a dire impact on local economies, especially through mass unpaid furloughs and reduced spending on military activities.

In letters sent on March 1 to the governors of 10 states most likely to be impacted by sequestration, Carter said reduced spending would mean major cutbacks at military facilities.

The letters were sent to the governors of Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, according to the American Forces Press Service.
