Sequestration making cuts to the unemployed


Springfield – Cuts are coming to those who are unemployed.


State Officials plan to notify 80 thousand people of a major cut in emergency benefits. This means people will see about 50 dollars less on their weekly benefits.


The cuts come after the Federal Budget Sequestration. Cuts start May 27th, and the state is sending out letters to those affected.
