The sequester cuts, or series of across-the-board federal budget reductions, are split evenly between domestic spending and defense, and at least one New York Congressman is voicing concerns about the latter.

Republican Congressman Chris Gibson says he is concerned about the effects of such drastic cuts on defense spending.

Gibson, who represents the 19th congressional district, had a 24-year career in the Army.
