Chairman McKeon on the Reinstatement of Furloughed DOD Civilians


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-CA), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, today made the following statement on the reinstatement of hundreds of thousands of furloughed Defense Department civilians to the workforce.

"I am very pleased to see so many of our national security workforce will be able to return to work. Congress gave the Executive Branch broad authority to keep our Armed Forces and dedicated defense civilians working throughout the government shutdown. Though I do not believe the law required these hundreds of thousands of workers to be furloughed in the first place, it is welcome news."
