CINCINNATI (AP) — The impacts of the partial federal government shutdown are beginning to ripple across Ohio.
The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force near Dayton has closed, canceling all tours and other events. The museum has some 1 million visitors a year and is a popular place for military reunions. A spokeswoman has said that all but three security staff members of 95 museum employees would be furloughed.
Some 8,700 civilian employees at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton had been notified earlier that they would be on unpaid leave if the shutdown began. The base has a total workforce of about 29,000, including civilian and military personnel.
Other impacts of the shutdown will include closed national parks, delays in government-backed mortgages and trimmed congressional staffs.
