Government Shutdown Update

By Callie Wyckoff


Washington Dc is preparing for a huge economic hit as October 1 will start yet another government shutdown.

The last government shutdown was also the longest shutdown in the last 40 years- lasting 35 days from December 2018 to January 2019.

This shutdown cost the government around 47 million dollars in revenue. Washington DC is preparing for most national parks to close, including the Smithsonian and National gallery of art which could impede income from tourist spending.

At this time, it is expected that federal law enforcement will be affected the most as they will have to work without pay.

In addition to this, there are roughly 11,000 active-duty military personnel who won't be getting paid for their service during the shutdown.

Most government officials biggest fear is that some people still have not bounced back financially from the pandemic and this shutdown could cost some people their homes.
