For analysis on the partial government shutdown's impact in Southern Arizona, Arizona 360 turned to Brint Milward, director of the University of Arizona School of Government and Public Policy. MIlward said Tucson was affected most among major cities in the state.
"We have 3.3 percent of our workforce in Tucson are civilian government employees. Phoenix is only 1.1 percent. So that's 13,000 civilian civil servants who did not get paid, who did not do their jobs," Milward said.
Milward also discussed the upcoming deadline imposed by the Trump administration for lawmakers to reach a deal on border security or face another shutdown, and the lasting impact of the previous shutdown.
