Automatic spending cuts affecting Pa. detailed

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration says automatic spending cuts set to take effect this week would mean less money for Pennsylvania's schools, military, environmental protection, and drug treatment.

The White House said its numbers cover only cuts from March to September; whether states could move money around depends on individual budgets and programs.

The reductions in Pennsylvania would include:

furlough of about 26,000 civilian military employees;

about $26.4 million for primary and secondary education;

about $21.4 million to educate children with disabilities;

more than $2.9 million for substance abuse programs; and

more than $1.2 million to respond to public health threats.

Gov. Tom Corbett's administration has said the cuts would total about $240 million for Pennsylvania, and no state money would be used to replace them.
