TOMAH, WI (WTAQ) - 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 1,500 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 in automatic federal spending cuts which took effect in March. About half the cuts affect the military.
