State-By-State: How the Sequester Is Set to Hammer the Economy (Updated)

With the across-the-board cuts in the federal budget sequester set to go into effect starting Friday, the White House is releasing a series of fact sheets outlining exactly how hard the cuts would hit state economies. Among the ugly consequences, according to the Huffington Post:

In Ohio, 350 teacher and teacher-aide jobs are at risk, which means 43,000 fewer students will be served.... In Virginia, 90,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed. About 4,180 fewer children in Georgia would get vaccines and, in Kentucky, 400 fewer victims of domestic violence would end up being served. Recently approved aid for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts will also be at risk, officials said, and commuters should expect more delays in airports.

The Washington Post also has a helpful interactive infographic breaking down the White House numbers.

These reports come after a series of other warnings of the state-by-state effects of the sequester, including reports from the Center for American Progress, National Education Association, and the National Priorities Project.
