I don't read the callup into federal service as the sole method of activation for the NG. It seems to me that the governor can still call them up for local service, in which case the state pays the cost. As far as I can tell, this is the case in Missouri.

From Wiki: "The Governor can activate National Guard personnel to "State Active Duty" in response to natural or man-made disasters or Homeland Defense missions. State Active Duty is based on State statute and policy as well as State funds. Soldiers and Airmen remain under the command and control of the Governor. The federal Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) does not apply under state active duty status or Title 32 status."

When called up into federal service they certainly don't have arrect power, but what about when called in by the governor for local service, when they are not under federal command? Don't they have whatever power the governor delegates to them?
