State-by-State Sequestration Details

USA Today has covered details emerging from the White House, regarding the state-by-state effects of the pending federal sequestration process, scheduled to scale back most government spending effective Friday.

Obama’s schedule this week includes remarks Monday to the National Governors Association and a Tuesday visit to shipyards in Newport News, Va.
