Sequestration slashes $85 billion from federal spending, forcing cutbacks and furloughs on top of what we already know about the Arsenal.

We know there will be $197 million from the Arsenal's operations, one thousand jobs lost and civilian workers furloughed.

TV-6 has been reporting on how spending cuts will impact the Rock Island Arsenal and representatives of the First Army and the Arsenal said they are preparing for what is set to come. 
     
We're told the most immediate impact will be army civilian employees being furloughed for an average of one day per week for up to 22 weeks. That would start some time near the end of April. 

The furloughs will impact about 133 "First Army" civilian employees at the Arsenal and an additional 211 First Army civilian employees across the U.S.

Now months later, with no deal, the Arsenal is facing $197 million in cuts from it's operations. 

Civilian employees will be furloughed and the Army estimates one thousand jobs would be lost.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said today that later this month preliminary notifications will likely be sent out to the civilian employees who will be furloughed.
