Indiana's governor is making sure some federal employees in the Hoosier state affected by the government shutdown won't be left out in the cold.
Mike Pence says the state will pay them since the feds won't.
The governor has ordered the state pay 244 federally-reimbursed employees who support the National Guard.
He says the $33,000 a day commitment is a small price to pay for the guard's ability to handle emergencies.
Some employees have been recalled, but Pence says the state is ready if the shutdown continues.
Indiana is also funding federal programs like SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and WIC (Women, Infants and Children) through the end of October.
Adjustments will be made then if the shutdown is still going on.
