GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN: What we know about Wright Patt

Local businesses feeling pressure from government shutdown

U.S. lawmakers are in session today but no deal is in sight to prevent an extended government shutdown.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force closed Saturday and other local governmental institutions, including Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, will be closed Monday as Republicans and Democrats have failed to reach a deal to fund governmental operations.

Both sides are dug in at the moment, with Republicans pushing for a larger defense budget and the Democrats wanting more non-defense spending as well as an agreement on the immigration bill — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Cox Media Group D.C. Correspondent Jamie Dupree reports.

U.S. Senate members return at 1 p.m. today and the U.S. House of Representatives meet at 2 p.m. but no action is expected this afternoon. The U.S. Senate has a procedural vote set for early Monday morning on the GOP’s plan to fund the government through Feb. 8.

People who work at Wright-Patterson are being asked to report to work on Monday, but it's unclear how many may be sent home. 

WPAFB Public Affairs Director Marie Vanover said base officials won't know until Monday the extent the shutdown will have on base employees and services. 

"We will undergo an orderly shutdown. Those who are not exempt from the furlough will be sent home," Vanover said. 

Vanover said Sunday the base had not yet been advised of "the parameters" that will determine who stays and who goes home. 

When the last shutdown struck in 2013, both furloughed workers and those who stayed on the job were reimbursed. 

The Child Development Center was scheduled to be open Monday, spokeswoman Marie Vanover said Saturday. 

Col. Alden Hilton, commander of the Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine which marked its 100th anniversary Friday, said essential classes to train aeromedical flight personnel would continue without interruption. 

Hundreds of Air Force reservists scheduled for a monthly drill weekend Jan. 20-21 with the 445th Airlift Wing were expected to proceed because it was previously funded, said Lt. Col. Cynthia Harris, a unit spokeswoman. 

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is the largest single-site employer in Ohio with an estimated 27,000 military and civilian personnel. 

Wright-Patterson officials will report updates on the plan on its website The public may also get information by calling Wright-Patterson's public affairs line, (937) 522-3252.


1.  U.S. troops will continue to report for duty and U.S. Mail will be delivered, but around one million civilian federal workers will not be at work if the shutdown extends into Monday, according to the Associated Press.

2. Nearly 45,500 IRS employees will be furloughed, which could delay the implementation of lower income tax withholdings set to go into effect nationwide next month, according to the AP.

3. Medicare and Medicaid will continue to operate, the former continuing to provide insurance coverage for nearly 59 million seniors and disabled citizens and the ladder continuing to provide coverage for low-income and disabled people, according to the AP.

4. Most of the federal employees under the U.S. Department of Justice will continue working during the shutdown, including members of the national security division, the FBI, DEA, ATF and the U.S. Marshals Service, according to the AP.

5. Some U.S. Lawmakers have announced they will donate their pay during the shutdown. U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced Saturday he will donate to an Ohio diaper bank that supports struggling families and Sen. Todd Young (R-IND) announced he will donate his pay to charity.

Is the Dayton Arcade project at risk under new tax plan?

Published: Sunday, January 21, 2018 @ 12:21 PM

Plans to revitalize the Dayton Arcade could change under the GOP’s new tax plan, according to a story published Friday by the Wall Street Journal.

Under the new law signed by President Donald Trump last month, the 20 percent reimbursement provided to developers who are awarded federal historic tax credits is spread out over five years instead of one, which reduces the incentive to rehabilitate historic structures, according to WSJ’s report.

A number of local developers, preservationists and elected leaders from the Dayton area in December called on U.S. lawmakers to preserve the federal tax incentive program that has helped redevelop dozens of historic and iconic buildings in Dayton, resulting in an estimated $270 million in investment.

Here is what the Dayton Daily News reported: LOSS OF INCENTIVES WOULD BE DEVASTATING

The program is widely used by developers to finance restoration projects on former factories, empty department stores and other disused buildings, which helps to “inject life into sagging main streets,” according to WSJ’s report.

In December, the Dayton Daily News reported that Dayton Arcade’s development partners Cross Street Partners and Miller-Valentine Group were awarded $4 million in historic state tax credits on a proposed $41 million project to overhaul the collection of eight buildings in downtown Dayton. Those buildings, which once housed shops, a farmer’s market, apartments and offices, were closed 26 years ago.

The redevelopment plans include putting in pop-up restaurants and apartments around one anchor tenant yet to be announced.

WSJ reports that developer Cross Street Partners rushed to finish long-term leases on the Dayton Arcade’s eight buildings at the end of last year in the hopes of qualifying under the old tax-credit rules.

WSJ reports that David Williams, senior director at Cross Street Partners, said the weakened tax-credit program could have threatened a carefully constructed financing plan, which includes multiple tax incentives.

“A hiccup like that can be pretty devastating,” Williams is quoted in the report.

The Dayton Daily News will continue providing ongoing coverage of the efforts to redevelop the Dayton Arcade, a collection of eight buildings
