Guam - It's been exactly one week since the federal government partially shut down and just as the impacts are evident here at home, the Calvo Administration is hoping for some resolution. This morning, Governor Eddie Calvo met with his cabinet members for an update on the possible impacts should the federal government continue past this month.

Deputy press secretary Phil Leon Guerrero said, "In the meantime what our agencies are doing is trying to interface with their federal counterparts so that they can get the answers they need about how the shutdown will affect their programs when funding runs out and when that time comes."

Some of the agencies that are interfacing including the Guam Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Labor, the Department of Public Health and the Guam Housing and Urban Renewal Authority. For GHURA, Leon Guerrero says one of the concerns is come should the shutdown reach November 1, how that would impact public housing and the Section 8 voucher program.
