Spending Cuts Repayment Demands

FILE - In this June 5, 2012, file photo U.S. Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell talks about the recent deadly crash of an air tanker that was helping fight a wildfire in Utah, during a news conference at the agency's Southwest regional headquarters in Albuquerque, N.M. The U.S. Forest Service has sparked a backlash on Capitol Hill by demanding that dozens of states return millions of dollars in federal subsidies that were paid out two months before the cuts went into effect March 1. Tidwell sent letters last month to governors in 41 states informing each how much they owed. We regret having to take this action, but we have no alternative under sequestration, Tidwell wrote in each letter. (AP Photo/Susan Montoya Bryan, File)
