Too Soon to Tell if Sequester Would Impact Norwood
The sequester would automatically go into effect Friday, March 1 unless Congress takes action to stop it.
With uncertainty as to whether $85 billion in federal sequestration spending cuts will be stopped by Congress before Friday, it is unclear what impact it may have on Norwood.
Without action from Congress, the sequester would go into effect automatically on March 1, reducing spending by the state in a number of areas, including education, the environment, health, military and law enforcement, the White House said.
The White House recently released a statement outlining the impacts the sequester would have state-by-state, including Massachusetts.
Norwood General Manager John Carroll did not want to comment on the effect it could have on the town because it was too early to tell.
However, any Federal grants the town and schools receive could be impacted.
