L.A. County Could Lose Millions in Federal Funds
"Substantial federal budget approved by President Barack Obama on Friday could stop the flow of millions of dollars to services across Los Angeles County unless Congress acts to stop it. U. S. Rep. Alan Lowenthal warned last week of sequestration impacts on Long Beach," Patch.com reports. "And California State University, Long Beach, and Long Beach City College could both see cuts to student aid programs, according to a report by the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators. But Cal State Long Beach President F. King Alexander said beyond student aid cuts, the California economy is at risk. “I’m primarily concerned with the indirect effects of sequestration on California’s economy,” said Alexander in a statement Friday. “Across the board federal cuts to research programs, student financial aid and other important services could ripple out and stymie that growth."
