What Does A Government Shutdown Mean For You? (3019 hits)

-- New Web Site, www.GovernmentShutdown.org, Has All The Answers --
Nationwide -- A new web site has been launched to educate the public about how a federal government shutdown works, how it will affect them, and what their options are. Easily accessible at GovernmentShutdown.org, the web site offers a series of comprehensive articles, a listing of helpful resources, and detailed answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Launched by a virtual organization called Government Shutdown 101, the web site is a very informative tool for people who are not familiar with what happens when the federal government closes. It dispels all myths, and helps people to understand the difference between essential and non-essential government services and agencies.

It also helps federal government employees to better understand whether or not they will be furloughed, or if they will have to continue working without pay.

What is a Government Shutdown?
A government shutdown is when the non-essential government services are closed, due to the inability of a legislative body to reach an agreement on a budget for the current fiscal year. All essential agencies such as armed services, police forces, the FBI, the IRS, etc. remain active. However, the National Zoo, museums, and national parks are closed. Other agencies such as Social Security, Medicare, and the Dept of State offer limited services.

For more details, interested ones should visit www.GovernmentShutdown.org
