Ohio Base Catching Up From Furloughs

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - The commander of Ohio's largest military base says it could take weeks to catch up on the backlog of work created by the furloughs of thousands of civilian workers. 

Col. Cassie Barlow, 88th Air Base Wing commander at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, says base leaders have started planning for possible cuts and the potential of furloughs next year.  

Furloughs were ordered as part of mid-year federal budget cuts, but this week defense officials announced that the unpaid days off would be shortened from 11 days to 6 days.

It includes about 10,000 civil service workers at Wright-Patterson.    Barlow tells The Dayton Daily News that the effects of the furlough days will linger as workers try to catch up.
