Current Issues Discussion: Government Shutdown

Current Issues Discussion: Government Shutdown

The Current Issues Discussion committee will host an event on Thursday, Oct. 17, that will explore the federal government shutdown. It will begin at 4:30 p.m. in the Moulton Lounge in Bartels Hall.

Ben Judd, professor of marketing; Gregory Blosick, a finance lecturer; Josh Sandman, professor of political science; and Chris Shays, a former U.S. congressman who is a distinguished fellow in public service at UNH, will explore why the shutdown occurred and where the government will go from here.

At midnight on Oct. 1, the U.S. government shut down after lawmakers in the House and Senate could not come to an agreement on a spending plan for government funds. The discussion will explore the implications that the government shutdown has on future legislation and the Affordable Care Act as well as the effect the shutdown is having on government employees and U.S. citizens.
