  Today's Top News 
  • DOD may furlough nearly entire civilian workforce
    Nearly 800,000 civilian workers at the Pentagon may face furloughs at the end of April if sequestration takes effect, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said. By the middle of next month, employees may receive warnings that they could be furloughed. The Defense Department doesn't expect to lay off workers this year but said layoffs are a possibility next year. Defense News (2/20) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • End House recess and stop sequester, Democrats urge
    House Democrats are calling on Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to call back lawmakers from recess and hammer out a sequestration-stopping deal before the March 1 deadline. "Being on recess during this period is absolutely absurd," said Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va. The GOP counters that Democrats and the White House haven't put forth a sequester fix that would have enough votes for approval. In a panel hearing scheduled for today, House Democrats will detail the effect that they believe sequestration cuts would have. The Hill (2/20) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Spending slowdown may improve relations between DOD, industry
    The closing of the Pentagon spending spigot may have the effect of improving communication between the Defense Department and industry contractors, some say. Before, "[w]hen we had a program that was bleeding, we cauterized the wound with money, because we had it" and communication between industry and the DOD "broke down," said Brett Lambert, deputy assistant secretary of defense for manufacturing and industrial-base policy. That's beginning to change, he says, and the Pentagon is launching new dialogue with industry as it prepares for a time of austerity. (2/20) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • President warns of sequestration's effect on air travel
    President Barack Obama said Tuesday that allowing looming sequestration budget cuts to take effect March 1 would impose spending cuts on the Transportation Security Administration and the Federal Aviation Administration, which could affect air-travel operations. Airlines for America says federal officials have assured that air travel will remain safe. "In this still difficult economy, with the busy travel season a few months away, the traveling public deserves responsible action from Congress and the administration," said Victoria Day, an A4A spokeswoman.
