Tracking The Shutdown's Vermont Impact
The partial shutdown of the federal government has now stretched to almost three weeks. We're looking at the impacts the shutdown is having on our state, from some federal employees going without pay to ripple effects on airports, farms and research. And we want to hear if you've been affected.
We're joined by:
- Dan D'Ambrosio, business reporter for the Burlington Free Press
- Nicolas Longo, deputy director of aviation administration at Burlington International Airport
- Yvonne Garand, chief branding and marketing officer for the Vermont State Employees Credit Union (VSECU)
- William "Breck" Bowden, professor and chair of watershed science and planning at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at UVM
If you receive 3SquaresVT benefits, Hunger Free Vermont has information on how to make sure you continue to receive benefits during the shutdown at this link.
