Vt. National Guard furloughs begin next week

Posted: Updated:
COLCHESTER, Vt. -

Furloughs from federal cuts will mean less pay for Vermont National Guard members starting next week.

The Guard's 500 full-time members lose one day of work a week from July 8 to the end of September, effectively cutting their pay by 20 percent.

Vermont's adjutant general says the cuts won't effect the Guard's ability to respond to an emergency.
