CHARLESTON, West Virginia -

The National Guard in West Virginia is seeing first-hand results of the partial government shutdown.

A spokesman said Wednesday they were originally funded until noon on October 14.  That funding deadline has been extended until Friday the 18th at midnight.  

The spokesman said all federally reimbursed state employees will be told Friday during the day whether or not to come in to work on Monday.

This is not a furlow. National Guard officials are calling it a "reduction in hours".

If there is a resolution this week employees will not have any issues.
