  • Federal employees in the Jacksonville area are preparing for the impact of the government shutdown. Our Washington Insider Jamie Dupree says the furlough resulting  from the government shutdown means non-essential personnel in the federal workforce are not working. Jamie says, generally, Congress will act to give these employees back pay once a budget or short-term spending plan is passed.

Army Corps of Engineers  Employees were still told to report to work Monday, in order to execute orderly shutdown activities. They are assessing any potential impact to ongoing projects. National Weather Service Meteorologist in Charge Scott Cordero says the National Weather Service is considered ‘essential personnel’ so there would not be a local impact.
