Sequestration Effects On Iowa

Updated:

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Department of Management Director David Roederer says Iowa's state budget will be reduced by $46 million due to automatic federal budget cuts.    

Roederer says education, public health and workforce development will be the hardest hit areas. More than 235 budgeted positions could be impacted, though he didn't say how many of those jobs were filled or how many could face layoffs or furloughs.  

Roederer said at the Thursday press conference at the state Capitol that the state's National Guard funding will be cut. But it is largely funded by the federal government and doesn't come under the state budget.   

The total state and federal budget for Iowa is about $12 billion.

The White House and Congress last week failed to meet a deadline to prevent $85 billion in budget cuts.
