Government shutdown could affect Barksdale

More Furloughs could soon be coming to Barksdale Airforce Base.

Base officials say that if a government shutdown was to take place more civilian workers on the base could be furloughed.

While military members would not be affected by the furlough, they will not receive pay for work performed until an appropriation is passed.

“This could create financial hardships for our military personnel," says 2nd Bomb Wing Public Affairs officer Capt. Phil Ventura.

Base officials remain hopeful that a government shutdown will be averted.
