As you may know, Congress has not yet passed a continuing resolution for fiscal year 2014. Until Congress passes a continuing resolution, there will be a partial government shutdown beginning October 1, 2013.

Many federal employees have been furloughed, or temporarily relieved from work. While some government operations are curtailed, a number of programs, agencies, and departments deemed essential have not been affected.
