Government Shutdown Impacts Sheppard

Sheppard Air Force Base is committed to inspire and train airmen, but officials say that would be more difficult if the government shut down.
The clock is ticking down for a government shutdown to take effect at midnight Monday.

This after the senate rejected the latest house bill.

Sheppard Air Force Base is committed to inspire and train airmen, but officials say that would be more difficult if the government shut down.

Officials say Sheppard's mission readiness would be impacted.

Non-excepted civilian workers, which is about 57% of Sheppard's workforce would be furloughed Tuesday morning.

Excepted civilian's and military workers would also take a hit, but Sheppard Air Force Base officials say those folks would see it in their wallets.

“For those personnel they would report to work and they would have to continue to work despite the government shutdown, and they would not receive a paycheck until an Appropriations bill or a continuing resolution is passed,” said Dan Hawkins, a public affairs officer from SAFB.

If the government does in fact shutdown those furloughed would have to come in tomorrow morning to sign paperwork for the furlough to take place.
