The Obama administration has released fact sheets detailing how sequester cuts are going to affect every state in the nation. The hit to Washington? Let's start with education:
Teachers and Schools Washington will lose approximately $11,606,000 in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 160 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 11,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 50 fewer schools would receive funding. In addition, Washington will lose approximately $11,251,000 in funds for about 140 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with disabilities.
There's a lot more, of course. Cuts that will affect the water supply, public health, job search assistance, the STOP Violence Against Women Program, vaccines for children, nutrition assistance for seniors, public safety, and military readiness. Read all about it right here.
