Some Federal Workers to Head Back to Job

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Most Idaho National Guard members furloughed due to the government shutdown will return to work this week.

Col. Tim Marsano in a statement on Sunday says some members will return to work Monday, and most will return on Tuesday.

The move comes after Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered nearly all 350,000 furloughed Defense Department civilian employees back on the job. Hagel says he based his decision on a Pentagon interpretation of a law called the Pay Our Military Act, which was passed shortly before the partial government shutdown began. About 850 Idaho National Guard employees were placed on furlough.
