Sequester freezes hiring at federal prison in Berlin
The across-the-board government budget cuts that went into effect March 1 will cap hiring at the prison right now at 251 or about 70 percent of the facility's planned staffing level according to information provided by the office of U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte. That staffing level will only allow for 500 inmates — less than half the 1,152 medium security and 128 minimum security inmates the prison will house when fully activated.
