Corpus Christi Army Depot prepares for potential budget cuts
By Lee Sausley, KRIS-TVFebruary 19, 2013
CORPUS CHRISTI - If Congress and the White House can't reach an agreement on how to end the current budget stand off, automatic spending cuts will kick in March 2nd.
The military is already bracing for huge cutbacks and U.S. defense workers like those at the Corpus Christi Army Depot could be facing furloughs or even layoffs.
But the commander of CCAD says anything is possible. However, he also says the depot generated 1.6 billion dollars in revenues last year.
"We did that with 18-percent less people and hours than we did in 2010 and not only that, our excess materials have been reduced in the millions," said Colonel Christopher Carlile.
Those are some impressive numbers, but will it be enough to protect the depot from the coming budget storm? We'll have more in a special report tonight on KRIS 6 News at Ten.
