Case workers will begin placing some who apply on a wait list, particularly those who are homeless or are non-breastfeeding mothers.

I’ve asked Fox News spokeswoman Ashley Nerz for comment.

UPDATE:

EDITOR’S NOTE:
Due to a reporting error, a March 1 FoxNews.com story on the timing and impact of the sequestration cuts used information from an internal research document that contained material previously published by other news organizations. The story did not properly credit the sources of that material, and has subsequently been removed from FoxNews.com.

The uncredited use of the material was unintentional, and FoxNews.com regrets the error.
