NATION IN BRIEF : WASHINGTON, D.C. : Corps of Engineers May Face Job Cuts

May 25, 1991|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Defense Secretary Dick Cheney sent Congress a proposal to cut 2,600 jobs from the Army Corps of Engineers and streamline its organization. There are 29,000 civilians and 1,000 military personnel in the Corps, which provides engineering services for the federal government and the military in all 50 states and overseas. The job cuts would primarily affect civilian positions, and no offices are being closed, a Pentagon spokesman said. The spokesman said the plan was expected to take five years to enact and expected to glean $112 million in savings annually.
