DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa National Guard has laid off 100 state employees and canceled more training due to the ongoing partial government shutdown.

The state Department of Public Defense employees received notice Thursday afternoon that they would be temporarily laid off for up to 60 days beginning Friday. Officials say this immediate action is in lieu of a 30-day temporary layoff that was scheduled to begin on Oct. 18.

An additional 16 state employees continue a 20-day temporary layoff, and five federal technicians remain furloughed.

About 2,100 full-time Iowa National Guard employees remain on duty. Many were furloughed then called back to work due to the Pay Our Military Act.

The Iowa National Guard continues to fund "excepted" activities like deployments.
