(CRANE) - More than 4,000 civilian employees at Indiana's Crane Naval Surface Warfare Center will be furloughed one day a week beginning next month.

The cuts at Crane are part of $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts designed to shrink the federal deficit.

U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly says Crane will lose $36 million under the budget cuts.

Defense contractors working with Crane also face uncertainty.

Many saw work slow down before the budget cuts and are waiting to see whether money continues to flow for their services.
