White House says Minnesota would feel sequester
The White House claims thousands of jobs are at stake with today's beginning of a federal sequester, automatic cuts in most federal programs.
Here are some cuts the White House and U.S. Rep. Rick Nolan say Minnesotans can expect by September if Congress and the president make no changes:
-- About $7 million in general education funding is at risk, putting 100 teacher and aide jobs in jeopardy.
-- Disabled children's education programs would lose $9.2 million.
