Yesterday, the White House put out a state-by-state breakdown of what it said would be the likely impacts if sequestration happens.
Some excerpts of what the report said about South Carolina:
In South Carolina, approximately 11,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by around $59.5 million in total. Army: Base operation funding would be cut by about $62 million in South Carolina. Air Force: Funding for Air Force operations in South Carolina would be cut by about $19 million.
Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for approximately 900 children in South Carolina, reducing access to critical early education.
South Carolina will lose approximately $12.5 million in funding for primary and secondary education, putting around 170 teacher and aide jobs at risk. In addition about 15,000 fewer students would be served and approximately 30 fewer schools would receive funding. In addition, South Carolina will lose approximately $8.6 million in funds for about 100 teachers, aides, and staff who help children with disabilities.
