The government shutdown will affect some here in the Wabash Valley.
The 181st Intelligence Wing and the Indiana Air National Guard will be on duty but 117 technicians at the air guard base at Terre Haute’s Hulman Field will be impacted.
Statewide, about 1,000 DOD technicians who work for the Indiana National Guard are being furloughed, and that is about half of the regular force.
The Indiana Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, known as WIC will continue operations as usual. Funding for Medicaid, highways and jobless benefits will also not be affected. Indiana currently has adequate cash reserves which will keep some programs in operation until congress can work through its problems.
