DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
The Iowa National Guard says more than 1,000 full-time employees have been furloughed because of the partial government shutdown. The Guard says most of the furloughed employees are federal technicians that are uniformed members of the Guard. About 45 are civilian federal government employees. Col. Greg Hapgood says about 50 employees remain on duty. The shutdown began Tuesday. The Guard says most drills scheduled through Oct. 10 and community outreach missions have also been canceled.
