How We Would Be Affected By Federal Government Shutdown

If the federal government shuts down, there are a lot of different ways we would feel it here. Albemarle County spokeswoman Lee Catlin says education, housing voucher programs, and social services could be affected. Catlin says there’s another group that would feel a direct impact, and that would come back to the rest of us. Federal workers would have less to spend, and that could have an affect on our local economy.
