PHOENIX -- If Congress can't reach a deal by Friday, automatic spending cuts known as sequester will start to kick in.

A new report released by the White House has a list of federal cuts that Arizona will face this year, including:

• Nearly $30 million for teachers and schools, putting 360 jobs at risk, cutting 1,000 kids from Head Start and reducing aid to 3,600 college students.

• Cutting funding to military operations in Arizona by nearly $50 million

• Cutting funding to protect air and water quality by more than $2 million.
