Sequester Cuts Hit Nevada National Guard

( Carson City, NV ) – Adjutant General Bill Burks says the automatic budget cuts will hurt the Nevada National Guard’s readiness and overall operation in Nevada. He says nearly 600 of his civilian technicians will lose 20 percent of their pay for 22 weeks beginning in April because of furloughs they’ll have to take. Burks says the cuts also have prompted a reduction in training flights from 200 to 300 hours a month to 40 hours a month.
