TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The federal shutdown has already furloughed 772 members of the Kansas National Guard, and the Adjutant General's Department says 263 civilians who support the Guard will be furloughed as well.

Friday's announcement says the civilians are state employees whose jobs are funded by the federal government.

The adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, said 139 of the affected civilians work mainly in Topeka, Wichita and Salina. They perform supply, clerical, maintenance and repair support for the federal functions of the Guard and the Adjutant General's department.

The other 124 civilians work at the Regional Sustainment Maintenance Sites at Fort Riley and in Salina.

The furloughed Guard members include 417 soldiers, 209 airmen from the 190th Air Refueling Wing in Topeka and 146 airmen at the 184th Intelligence Wing in Wichita.
