CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - More than 900 West Virginia Air and Army National Guard technicians will be furloughed in the coming months because of automatic federal budget cuts.
The technicians maintain the Guard's equipment and vehicles, and are classified as civilian employees. They're among more than 600,000 U.S. Department of Defense civilian employees who will be furloughed a total 11 days each.
The Charleston Daily Mail reports that the furloughs will affect 186 workers with the 130th Airlift Wing in Charleston; 384 with the 67th Airlift Wing in Martinsburg; and 376 Army National Guard members at locations across the state.
Furloughs in West Virginia also include 1005 U.S. Army employees, 578 Air Force employees, 26 Navy employees and 83 other Department of Defense employees.
