City, county and state agencies, and some federal agencies in Kittitas County that hadn’t already closed, were scrambling to assess the effects of the federal government shutdown Tuesday.

Local U.S. Department of Agriculture offices are closed, including the Animal Plant Health Inspection Service Plant Protection Quarantine, the Agricultural Service Center, Kittitas County Conservation District offices and Natural Resources Conservation Service offices.

    This Article really just reveals how Completely Foolish many of these Jobs are, and How TOTALLY NON ESSENTIAL many of these Jobs are out there. I actuaully laughed out loud when I read the part where Someone was Furloughed from their Job where they work out of their Home... I really hope they let this thing go on awhile, Weed out all these money sucking positions and get these people out in the private sector where they can finally feel good about what their doing , Let them become part of the Drive Wheel that moves us down the road, and not the Concrete Block that Drags behind us, many (but not all) of these Jobs that are affected are really just a Extension of the Welfare Program, the fact is many were developed back in the Clinton Administration when they may the So Called Welfare to Work program., they even educated many of these people so they could give them a Title or what ya could call a Important Sounding Position.., the entire thing would be funny if it wasnt so ridiculous.......Tell me people, Do you have non essential people roaming around your workplace... If you do, I bet they dont make a carreer out of it, or there out of a Job when their job is done.. HOLD FIRM, Drain the Swamp. THIS IS A GOOD THING not the end of the world..
