Central Valley Faces Critical Sequester Cuts

The social and economic impact of sequestration will be widespread and strongly felt in the Central Valley. That was the message Democratic Congressman Jim Costa emphasized today in Fresno. Costa represents the 16th district encompassing Fresno, Madera and Merced Counties. Similar to other Valley counties the cuts will hurt agriculture programs, the social safety net and environmental protection. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
