Among funding Massachusetts stands to lose:

Military: 7,000 civilian Department of Defense employees furloughed, reducing gross pay by $43.4 million. Army base operations cut by $8 million and Air Force operations by $5 million.

Education: $13.9 million for primary and secondary education, putting 190 teacher and aide jobs at risk; $13.4 million for 160 teachers, aides and staff who help children with disabilities; and Head Start and Early Head Start services would be eliminated for about 1,100 children.

Environment: $4 million for clean water and air quality and other antipollution programs, and $472,000 in grants for fish and wildlife protection.

Law enforcement: About $300,000 to support law enforcement, prosecution and courts, crime prevention and education, correction, drug treatment and enforcement, and crime victim and witness initiatives.

Seniors: $535,000 to provide meals.
