Columbia, SC (WLTX)-- News19 is On Your Side trying to get answers from our congressmen about the budget cuts.
You have told us you want to know what South Carolina Congressmen are doing to prevent the 85 billion dollars in automatic cuts that will affect our state. Our Clark Fouraker and photojournalist Corey Epps are on their way to DC to get those answers.
The military, education, our airports, and a number of areas are all on the chopping block.
Click here for a full list of cuts.
You can let your congressmen and our senators know what you think about the potential cuts by using the hashtag #19inDC on Twitter.
You can also post your comments on the WLTX Facebook Page.
We'll will take your questions straight to Congress.
