ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) - In the wake of the government shutdown, many major New Mexico sites and jobs will be affected.
Civilian workers at the state's military bases will be hit the hardest.
Military missions will continue.
However, at Kirtland Air Force Base, 1,074 civilian employees out of their 2,070 civilian employees are now furloughed.
More than 400 civilians at Cannon Air Force Base, and another 422 civilians from Holloman Air Force base, are now placed on emergency furlough status.
This, after many employees already endured furloughs due to government cut-backs.

National parks such as Carlsbad Caverns, White Sands National Monument, and Bandelier National Monument in Los Alamos are closed.
"This is what everybody is supporting their families with, and their rent and mortgages, you know, all those things just like all the other federal employees in the country," said Chris Judson, Bandelier National Monument park ranger. "But that's not the main thing. I mean, that's certainly painful, but we are in the park service because we want to provide for the public to enjoy their parks."
The state has a cushion for emergencies like these - and state officials say they have enough money to keep state-managed, federally-funded programs like welfare and school lunches going through December.
That also means the paychecks will keep coming for 1,800 state employees paid for with federal funds.
