Layoffs at GRC and GSFC?

More than 150 NASA Glenn jobs in jeopardy, Rep. Marcy Kaptur's office says, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"NASA Glenn Research Center stands to lose more than 150 jobs when automatic spending cuts under the "sequester" go into effect, according to the office of Toledo Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials told Kaptur the cuts would end cryogenic propulsion research headquartered at Glenn, resulting in the loss of 10 to 15 jobs. A separate $14.5 million sequester-related cut in Glenn's operational budget will cost another 150 support staff jobs, said Kaptur spokesman Steve Fought. "It appears to be a very difficult fiscal environment for NASA Glenn," said Fought."
