KS Congressman Looks Ahead to Shutdown Ramifications

As the federal government moves closer to a shutdown, 1st District Kansas Congressman Tim Huelskamp is talking about what a continued budget stalemate could mean. During the 1996 federal government shutdown, national parks closed, thousands of federal employees were sent home, and services such as the processing of passport applications were halted. But many things DID continue running, and would do so again this time around:

Huelskamp says his staff in Washington and in Kansas would continue to work if a shutdown occurred, although they initially would not receive pay. Unless President Obama and Congress can reach a deal by midnight Friday, a government shutdown will take place.
