A Vermont military contractor is laying off workers due to federal budget cuts.

Revision Eyewear makes protective glasses at its plant in Essex Junction and high-tech helmets at its plant in Newport. But the company said government orders have dried up as a result of sequestration.

Monday Revision announced it is laying off 30 employees -- 19 from Essex and 11 from Newport. Revision continues to employ 194 people at its two Vermont plants.
