The Defense Department on Wednesday officially notified Congress that it plans to begin furloughing its 800,000 civilian employees across the country if automatic spending cuts begin March 1, estimating the states would lose a total of $4.86 billion in workers' wages this year.
"This is not a Beltway phenomenon," Jessica L. Wright, the acting undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, told reporters at the Pentagon. "More than 80 percent of our civilians work outside of the D.C. metro area. They live and work in every state of the union."
