What Does the Government Shutdown Mean

NBC12.com - Richmond, VA News
I know I just posted this a week ago, but here (WashPost) and here (NYTimes) are department by department listings of what will happen with the federal government shutdown and below is a short video.  My students are working on federalism so they will today have to research the impact on state and localities.  For example we 27% of our students receive free and reduced lunch, but those students will not immediately be impacted (#40).  Here and above is a story on how it impacts part of Virginia. Here is the first exercise my and Doug Zywiol's students did on the shutdown.
