In the event of a lapse in government funding
In the event of a lapse in government funding:
In the event of a lapse of appropriated funds at midnight October 1, normal operations of the United States Government will be suspended until funding is restored. In that event, my offices will be closed and staff will be placed in a temporary, non-duty, non-pay status until such time as funding is restored. Staff will not be allowed to report to work, check emails or respond to your messages for the duration. This will likely result in a delay in responses to your inquiries.
Tours of the Capitol will be canceled until funding is restored.
