Government Shutdown Affects Local Troops

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

The government shutdown is now affecting our local troops.

3,500 Montana National Guardsmen and women will not report to drill exercises set for this weekend.

Governor Bullock says, "Washington's inability to pass a budget is now affecting important training exercises, and disrupting plans for thousands of Montana families."

A small group getting ready for deployment overseas will continue their preparations.
