Yuma Proving Grounds Closure

We start the third day of a Federal Government shutdown with no end in sight. Several members of Congress met with President Barack Obama Wednesday night, but failed to come any closer to resolving the issue. Civilian employees of The Yuma Proving Ground have found themselves without work and on furlough during the shutdown. YPG Public Affairs spokesman Chuck Wullenjohn says workers went in Tuesday spending several man hours to make sure some items were secured.
All civilian workers, including Wullenjohn, will be on furlough until the government ends the shutdown stalemate.
