Schumer: DFAS not on the table to close

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer had some welcome news for the employees of DFAS on Monday.

Schumer said there is "absolutely nothing on the table to close the Rome facility." Earlier this year, federal officials got wind of a proposal to reduce or transfer jobs.

Schumer says the under secretary of defense and the Army secretary both confirm there are no plans to close DFAS, which employs 957 workers.

Schumer says the location is one of the most productive and efficient in the country.
