With a federal government shutdown appearing increasingly likely, please join Congressman Jim Moran this Thursday, April 7th at an emergency town hall meeting to discuss the impact on the federal workforce, contractors, and local economy if a shutdown occurs.
The 8th District has one of the largest populations of federal employees in the country, home to more than 65,000 civil servants and in which more than 110,000 federal employees come to work each day. The current Continuing Resolution funding the federal government expires at midnight, April 8th. If not extended, on April 9th nearly half the federal workforce would be furloughed until Congress passes a budget. Our federal workforce is one of our greatest assets. A shutdown of the government will be particularly harmful to these workers, their families, those that do business with the government and local businesses that cater to their needs.
When: Thursday, April 7th 2011 7:30– 9:00 pm
