Arizona’s Military Installation In Partial Shutdown

October 02, 2013

The budget impasse in Washington has put Arizona’s military installations into a partial shutdown. At Fort Huachuca in Sierra Vista, spokeswoman Tanja Linton says about the vast majority of the 3,600 civilian workers on the base personnel have been furloughed.

“Military are exempt from the furlough but DOD civilians, unless they are accepted such as our Department of the Army police officers or firefighters, are being furloughed,” Linton said.

She says for the furloughed workers, there’s nothing to do but go home and wait for further instructions.
