Civilians who were furloughed at two Kansas National Guard maintenance sites by the federal shutdown are being called back to work.

The Adjutant General's Department said Monday that 126 of the 263 federally funded state employees who were furloughed Oct. 1 will go back to work at sites in Salina and Fort Riley.

The employees perform maintenance on military equipment for active duty and reserve units. The department says they can be recalled because they are working under funding from the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30.

Monday's recalls leave 139 state employees who support the Kansas National Guard on furlough. Those workers perform supply, clerical, maintenance and repair support for the federal functions of the Guard and the Adjutant General's department.
