Civilians in Pacific watch, wait on progress of spending bill

Pacific edition, Saturday, December 15, 2007

Civilian employees around the Pacific are taking a wait-and-see stance toward the lack of a war-spending bill.

Wayne A. Newnam, library manager at Sasebo Naval Base, Japan, doesnt know if his job will be affected, but he thinks the debate could be settled before any layoffs occur.

I think cooler heads will prevail on this, Newnam said.

Ken Morgan, skills and development supervisor at Yokosuka Naval Bases Auto Hobby Shop, said hes following the news of the possible layoffs but doesnt think his shop would be affected.

We are DOD civilians, but were nonappropriated-fund employees, Morgan said. It may have more impact on the GS employees on other parts of the base.
