A Government Shutdown Might Be On The Horizon

While there are many individuals and groups in the federal government that are working to avoid a full government shutdown, it is widely speculated that on October 1, the start of the fiscal year, a shutdown will occur. With this threat looming in the near future, it is important to understand how it might affect Wyoming and its business community.

Following the 2018 government shutdown, the Congressional Research Service created a report on the impacts that previous shutdowns had on the country. Many industries, groups, and services experienced problems as a consequence, including the following:

  • Healthcare

  • Law Enforcement and Public Safety

  • Parks, Museums, and Monuments

  • Visas and Passports

  • American Veterans

  • Federal Contractors

  • Bureau of Land Management – Energy Development Sectors

  • Small Business Administration

Go deeper: As the anticipated date of the shutdown approaches and the situation progresses, your Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce will keep you in the know with updates. To learn more about the history of government shutdowns and the specific impacts that they have had across industries, check out this article from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
