Kan. Furloughed Employees Recalled To Work

Civilians who were furloughed at two Kansas National Guard maintenance sites will go back to work.

The Kansas Adjutant General's Department said Monday that 126 of the 263 federally-funded state employees will return to work at sites in Salina and Fort Riley.

The employees perform maintenance on military equipment for active duty and reserve units.

The department says they can be recalled because they are working under funding from the fiscal year that ended on September 30.

The recalls leave 139 state employees who support the Kansas National Guard on furlough.

Those workers perform supply, clerical, maintenance and repair support for the federal functions of the Guard and the Adjutant General's department.
