CENTRAL FLORIDA - Gov. Rick Scott said he's concerned about fewer National Guard soldiers being available during hurricane season.
Furloughs caused by sequestration begin Monday.
Scott said the National Guard offered to take funding reductions before or after hurricane season, but the request was denied by the federal government.
The National Guard said it will still help during disasters but the manpower shortages could result in slower response times.
