A government shutdown would impact employees at Robins Air Force Base, but just how much, will depend on their positions.
Public Affairs Spokeswoman Capt. Pamela Stauffer said military and critical civilian employees will work, while others will be furloughed.
In the event of a shutdown, Stauffer wrote, "Some civilian members of Robins' workforce - primarily those in administrative and other support positions - would be furloughed. These employees are being advised today (Friday) by their supervisors, who are also explaining to them how the furloughs would be administered."
In a statement to 13WMAZ, Stauffer said, "Employees who work in certain excepted functions such as national security and safety would continue to work. Most members whose positions are financed by other than appropriated funds would also continue to work."
