DFA Working Hard to Determine Who Will be Furloughed

Department of Finance and Administration says it's not an easy task.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- With the government shutdown still sputtering along, the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) is hard at work trying to determine which state workers will go on furlough.

It's a job DFA says isn't easy.

"You dwell on it. Not just here, but away from work, you think about that, because you understand the decisions you are making are impacting people's lives," DFA's Paul Louthian says.

Right now, the state says just under 600 employees are at home because of the now 2-week old partial government shutdown.

Officials at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock (UALR) say they are preparing to place 47 students, teachers and faculty on furlough starting Wednesday, all of whom are paid by federal grant money that is no longer available because of the federal shutdown.
