October 17, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

President Barack Obama signed legislation late yesterday night bringing federal employees back to work after Congress resolved the budget logjam which led to a 16-day shutdown.

Senate leaders championed bipartisan legislation to reopen the government and remove the threat of government default on its debts. All federal government employees - including some 4,000 Defense Department employees - will report to work tomorrow.
The legislation is a continuing resolution that will provide federal government spending at fiscal year 2013 levels. This keeps the sequester-level budget in effect.

Commissary reopens during shutdown

October 15, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

The Moody Commissary resumed normal operating hours Oct. 8 after it closed on Oct. 2 due to the federal government shutdown.

The government shutdown occurred when Congress was unable to reach an agreement on a spending bill for fiscal 2014, which resulted in the commissary's closure.

"We're glad to be back in business," said Royden Hunnewell, Moody Commissary manager. "We're bound by Department of Defense directives and policies, so we were affected by the trickle-down effect. I'd like to think that we'd not have anything else like this happen again."
