DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Uncertainty about a federal government shutdown has created anxiety for employees at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in southwest Ohio.

The Dayton Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1QndJsW ) that officials hope congressional leaders pass a continuing spending resolution to keep the government running past Oct. 1.

A shutdown would force the Air Force to delay as many as 50 programs, many of which are managed at Wright-Patterson. The base near Dayton is Ohio’s biggest single-site employer with more than 26,000 military, civil service and contract personnel.

Thousands of federal civil service employees were furloughed at Wright-Patterson and elsewhere in the Miami Valley during the last government shutdown in October 2013.
