MONTGOMERY CO., AL (WSFA) -
The White House has released a new state-by-state report on the devastating impact the sequester will have on the U.S. According to the report, Alabama stands to lose tens of millions of federal dollars if no deal is done to avoid those cuts.
The military services in the state would lose $176.9 million with as many as 27,000 civilian Department of Defense employees furloughed. Law enforcement, crime prevention and prosecution are slated to take a $230,000 loss in justice grants.
Public Health would take a hit of $457,000 with an additional $1.1 million in grants to treat substance abuse. The department of public health would lose $165,000, translating into 4,100 fewer HIV tests.
Education is looking at steep cuts with primary and secondary education set to lose $11 million. With that cut, 150 teacher's aides are at risk of losing their jobs. The white house generically states 21 thousand fewer students would be served.
The cuts will go into effect March 1st if Congress does not approve a plan by then. Click the following link for the full report of the sequester's impact on Alabama.
