MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - As workers head to Redstone Arsenal with the looming government shutdown, WHNT News 19 is talking with local leaders for their perspective.

Madison Mayor Troy Trulock joined us on air Monday morning to discuss the latest.

"Any kind of government shutdown or furlough is not appreciated, but in reality, we've had 17 government shutdowns in the past 37 years, and out of those 17 shutdowns, it's been for a total of 110 days," Trulock said.

"We're hopeful it will not impact our economy, but we have some tough decisions to make today to either pass what's on the table or at least extend our military a pay for the near future," Trulock added.
