A Senate Panel heard budget requests from a number of agencies Wednesday including The Department of Military Affairs. Colonel Glenn Sutphin said the department is bracing for potential federal cuts associated with what’s called “sequestration.”
“If sequestration actually happens there will be a 10-percent cut. At that point there will be a lot of cuts for Florida. And even though we’re the department of military affairs and theoretically just the guard, we function as your military advisors also. We’re extremely concerned about bases all around Florida,” Sutphin said.
