Government Shutdown Information

About the Shutdown

*Information Regarding Federal Government Shutdown*

As of October 1, 2013, the United States Federal Government is without a budget and has 'shut down'.  While this will affect most government resources (websites, offices, etc.) the particulars will vary from agency to agency.  Some websites are no longer updating information, and some websites have basically 'closed'.  

Some agencies which are partially funded through fees (such as the Patent and Trademark Office) may not be able to maintain services as the shut down continues.  Other agencies, such as the National Park Service, are opening specific locations due to outside funding agreements.  So this is still somewhat fluid.

This resource is an ongoing effort to keep you informed.  Please contact us if you have any questions,
