Soldiers Rebuilding Colorado Roads Should Be Paid

DENVER (AP) — National Guard soldiers rebuilding washed-out roads in Colorado would apparently be paid on time under a bill passed hours before the federal government shutdown.

The bill would also ensure that the country’s active-duty personnel are paid.

About 450 Guard members from Utah, Kansas and Wyoming are expected to help rebuild roads in Colorado over the next months. The shutdown had threatened to delay that work.

Gov. John Hickenlooper and the state’s chief recovery officer, Jerre Stead, will give an update Tuesday morning on how the shutdown could affect Colorado’s efforts to recover from last month’s flooding.
