Wisconsin National Guard could stop COVID-19 testing as early as June

WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin National Guard could end COVID-19 testing across the state as early as next month.

Right now, the federal funding that pays for the guard's services during the pandemic runs out on June 24.

But without additional federal money, guard members would stop testing.

Governor Evers has asked the White House for additional money, but there's been no response so far.

June 24th was potentially picked on purpose. The June 24 deadline means that thousands of members who first deployed in late March will find themselves with only 89 days of duty credit, one short of the 90-day threshold for qualifying for early retirement and education benefits under the Post-9/11 GI bill. Another Trump admin calculated plan to save tax payer money. Of course no state will still need the National Guard after that date, right?
