Federal agencies to tell workers of shutdown plans

More by this author

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is telling federal agencies to give employees detailed information about contingency plans if the government shuts down.

Jeffrey Zients of the Office of Management and Budget says administration officials held a conference call with agency heads Thursday morning. He says officials instructed agencies to tell their employees which services will remain open and which employees will be furloughed.

Midnight Friday is the deadline for lawmakers to reach an agreement to keep funding the government at full levels to avoid a partial shutdown.

Zients says the impact on the economy of even a short shutdown could be “relatively significant”.
