OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington state Military Department is bringing back more than 700 federal technicians who were furloughed in the partial government shutdown.
Spokeswoman Karina Shagren says the civilian employees of the Washington National Guard are expected back at work starting Tuesday. They've been out for about a week.
About 80 state employees who are paid by federal money are still on furlough.
Major General Bret Daugherty who commands the Washington National Guard says the shutdown is continuing to have a negative impact on the department.
