U.S. Department of Defense sequestration budget cuts will force hundreds of Minnesota National Guard technicians to take unpaid time off. Guard spokesman Jon Lovald says about 1,100 technicians are being notified Wednesday that they must take one unpaid day off each week for 11 weeks.
The automatic budget cuts that grounded the Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds are taking a toll on performers, air show announcers, concessionaires, vendors and others who depend on air shows and the millions of spectators.
Federal legislation to end furloughs of air traffic controllers, is also expected to help keep the control tower open in St. Cloud. The U.S. Senate acted quickly this week when the furloughs caused travel delays for millions.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants are being freed from jail across the country, in advance of the sequester at the federal government. Meanwhile, Sixth District Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says she's not in favor of the move.
