Congress is set to head back to work Monday, and it has just four days left until across the board spending cuts go into effect.
President Barack Obama is now calling on the nation's governors to get involved.
The president will host several of them at the White House, but it's unclear if Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder will attend.
Congress has until Friday to get a deal in place or those spending cuts will take effect.
People are getting a first hand look at how those automatic spending cuts could affect Michigan.
The White House has released a report breaking down just where the state would see those cuts and Michigan will be hit hard.
The state would see cuts around $140 million. The cuts would include more than 67-million dollars in gross pay to 10-thousand civilian defense department employees.
K through 12 and disability education programs would lose about $42 million. The cuts would also affect airline travel and federal food inspection.
Military: 10,000 civilian Department of Defense employees would be furloughed, reducing gross pay by $67.7 million. $14 million for Army base operations.
Education: $22 million in funding for primary and secondary education. $20.3 million for teachers and aides for children with disabilities. Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for 2,300 children. 2,490 low-income students would college financial aid, and about 1,300 fewer would get work-study jobs to finance their higher education.
Enviornment: $5.9 million in environmental funding. $1.5 million for fish and wildlife protection.
Job Assistance: $1.7 million in funding for job search assistance, referral and placement.
Health: $2.9 million for substance abuse treatment. $944,000 for public health emergency preparedness.
Senior Nutrition: $1.8 million for meals for the elderly.
Law Enforcement: $482,000 in Justice Assistance Grants.
