EL PASO, TX — With no deal met for the fiscal cliff, this will have a big impact on Fort Bliss.
If no deal was met at midnight, sequestration cuts will automatically go into effect as of January 1st.
We spoke with Major Joe Buccino of Fort Bliss who tells us many things will be affected because of the fiscal cliff.
It would affect the civilian employed work force, the ability to train and equipment.
If a deal is met later, those cuts will go back into the federal budget.
