Recent Federal budget cuts are affecting persons close to home. Furloughs at the Yuma Proving Ground are now going into effect. Those changes will have an effect on the economy since work weeks will be shorter for several workers.
Chuck Wullenjohn says there has not been a firm identification on which services will be cut in the military in the next year.
For now, many at YPG will receive an extra day off in the week. That will stay in effect for about the next three months.
