(7/2/13) The federal budget sequester will start hitting home next week for employees at Fort McCoy.

The Army base between Tomah and Sparta will start furloughs next Monday for its 15-hundred civilian workers. They'll each lose one-day-a-week of work and pay through the end of the federal fiscal year September 30th. It's part of the 85-billion dollars in automatic federal spending cuts which took effect in March. About half the cuts affect the military.
