    Beginning today, Georgia will be preparing to take annual cuts to their federal budget ranging from $240 million a year to $20 million a month

    The cuts will mainly affect federally funded programs for early childhood education, senior citizens and transportation maintenance and repairs.

    “We’ll feel everything a little bit, I don’t know that we feel any one thing incredibly hard,” State Rep. Terry England of Auburn told WSB Radio.

    The cuts will have a major impact with the state’s military installations and defense companies.

    “If they’re looking at a 20 percent cut in salary, they’re going to slow down on a lot of their spending,” Rep. England said. “They’re going to delay buying a new car… they’re not going to go to as many movies, they’re not going to eat out as much.”
