MASCOUTAH, Ill. (AP) The Air Force says roughly 100 jobs are being phased out in a unit that provides technical services at Scott Air Force Base.

The Air Force Network Integration Center cuts at Scott involve 99 positions. Fifty-three of them are civilian jobs.

Air Force spokesman Andy Roake says the eliminations expected to take place through 2015 are due to budget constraints.

The jobs include middle-level management, staff and policy consultation positions.

The Air Force recently announced plans to cut 22,500 positions this year.

The Scott base is about 25 miles east of St. Louis.
