DAYTON, Ohio — The 88th Air Base Wing at Wright-Patterson will cut 40 percent of its budget, or more than $30 million, between now and the end of the fiscal year, the base commander and officials said Thursday.

No jobs will be included as part of the cuts, according to Col. Cassie B. Barlow, commander of the 88th Air Base Wing.

“A 40 percent reduction is really tough,” said Barlow.“We’re really having to dig deep to find the reductions.”

In the midst of cuts, 13,000 Wright-Patterson civilian employees are due to receive 14-day furlough notices beginning early next week with unpaid time off work beginning in mid-June, Barlow said. Less than 100 employees at the base are expected to be exempt from furloughs.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel could make an announcement in coming days on the status of furloughs as the Department of Defense looks for ways to reduce or eliminate the unpaid days, officials said Thursday.

“We’re holding out a little bit of hope, but at the same time we’re ready if we need to press with the furlough,” Barlow said.

The Air Force Materiel Command, the largest command at Wright-Patterson, has reached a pending agreement on how to handle furloughs with the American Federation of Government Employees Council 214, according to Sue Murphy, an AFMC spokeswoman. The Dayton Daily News left messages with union officials Thursday for comment.
Dems are done too

The republicans are bad but you should be paying attention to the liberal dems total lack of trustworthiness under Obama and Hillary. They hit the wall this week for good.

No comparison which party has devastated the US more. Even the diehard liberal media smells the blood in the water and is starting to bolt or snap.
