The government shutdown has now dragged on for 34 days — the longest shutdown in our nation’s history. It’s impacting every aspect of daily life and hurting thousands of families across the country who aren’t able to pay their essential bills. This shutdown is harming our nation’s aviation system, Coast Guard, law enforcement, food inspection agencies, emergency management personnel, Forest Service, and much more.
That’s why I’ve decided to hold a public town hall meeting in Eugene this Saturday at Lane Community College.
Nearly 10,000 federal workers in Oregon alone have been furloughed or have been working without pay since before Christmas. Many families cannot make their mortgage payments, pay for childcare, afford groceries, and make payments for other important bills. The shutdown is having secondary effects on small businesses and local economies.
Please join me to hear about what’s happening in Washington, D.C. and share how this shutdown has affected you, your family, and your community.
See you there,
Rep. Peter DeFazio
