What You’re Missing Today

The TV news has wall-to-wall coverage of what is affected by the shutdown of the federal government, but it’s far from comprehensive. Here are just a few of the federal agencies whose services we’ll have to manage without until Congress acts:

Broadcasting Board of Governors

Chief Human Capital Officers Council

Citizens’ Stamp Advisory Committee

Foreign Agricultural Service

* Office of Fossil Energy

* Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control Office

Indian Arts and Crafts Board

* Interagency Alternative Dispute Resolution Working Group

* Joint Board for the Enrollment of Actuaries

* Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies

Marine Mammal Commission

* Office of Refugee Resettlement

* Office of the Pardon Attorney

* Railroad Retirement Board

* Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation

* Tax Court

U.S. Arctic Research Commission

U.S. Board on Geographic Names

Weights and Measures Division

And a bit of good news amid the gloom: it appears the government will hang on to the Federal Helium Reserve a little while longer.
