Pat Quinn says if the federal government shutdown proceeds, Illinois employees paid by federal funds could face temporary layoffs as early as Wednesday. &nbsp;<br />The budget office had no estimates Monday for how many employees would be affected. &nbsp;<br />Abdon Pallasch is Quinn&#39;s assistant budget director. In a statement, he says that the timing of the layoffs would depend on existing resources and individual agencies.
