Wilm Mayor talks sequester and city impact

It's not just lawmakers in Washington or even state officials figuring the fall out from Friday's sequester, they're also tallying up the checks and balances in Wilmington.

Mayor Dennis Williams tells Delaware's Morning News no layer of government would escape potential cuts caused by a failure to reach an agreement by the March first deadline.

"We're very concerned because it's a trickle down effect. Once we start having cuts, we've already prepared our budget for cuts that we're going to do in our budget and then when the feds start to cut, the state has to cut and then we get less money from the state and it's a problem. It's a vicious cycle."
