Kansas National Guard Recalled From Shutdown

KSAL StaffOctober 7, 2013

All but five of the 772 Kansas National Guard airmen and soldiers who were furloughed last week because of the partial federal government shutdown are being called back to work.

The Kansas adjutant general’s office says Monday that the recalls come after the Department of Defense issued guidance over the weekend regarding which employees were covered by the federal furlough orders.

Those five National Guard technicians who remain furloughed don’t meet the guidance for recalls as stated by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.

However, Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, state adjutant general, says the 263 federally-funded state employees furloughed last week do not fall under the new guidelines and will continue to be furloughed.

Tafanelli says he hopes the shutdown ends soon and the department is able to return to normal operations.
