Defense spending cuts could largely affect Okla. jobs
News

WASHINGTON – Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, is making dire predictions about what will happen if government spending cuts kick in March 1.

He said most of the Defense Department’s 800,000 civilian workers will have to be furloughed starting in late April.

The impact would be felt strongly here in Okla. with over 10,000 jobs at bases like Tinker.

The bad news right now, Congress is not in session this week so when member return Monday they will have just four days to come up with a deal.
