Scott AFB Could Face Cuts

The St. Louis region's largest employer is bracing for the impact of planned cuts by the U.S. Air Force. The Air Force is planning to cut more than 22-thousand airmen this year. Spokeswoman Karen Pettit at Scott Air Force Base says over two-thousand airmen at the base in Belleville are eligible for what is called voluntary separation. She says they are also vulnerable to be cut whether or not they want to be. The largest cuts are being planned for security personnel.
