U.S. Air Force possibly cutting more than 700 Michigan jobs

MICHIGAN -- Michigan is set to lose hundreds of jobs.

The U.S. Air Force is scaling back and they plan to cut more than 700 jobs in the state. The majority would come from the Selfridge Air National Guard Base and the rest in Battle Creek.

These proposed cuts are just the tip of the iceberg. The Air Force told Congress it wants to cut 5,500 Air National Guard members nationwide.That's over the next few years.

Michigan Senator Carl Levin is the chairman of the Armed Services Committee. He said he wants to know the reasoning behind the move.

He will hold a meeting about these cuts on March 20.
