With shutdown looming, DOE expects to keep operating for now

With shutdown looming, DOE expects to keep operating for now | Department of Energy | Scoop.it
Although a federal government shutdown is looming, the U.S. Department of Energy expects federal employees to continue reporting for work unless there is a lapse in appropriations and all available money is spent.
I Fell's insight:

“Each component of DOE will continue to operate until prior year balances for funding of federal employees is exhausted,” DOE said in a guide posted on its website. “Their operations under those circumstances will be somewhat modified. For example, travel will generally be curtailed. DOE has some limited transfer and reprogramming authority, which may enable DOE to extend the number of days of funding available in some limited cases.”

Brett Frischmann on Infrastructure: The Social Value of Shared Resources | Berkman Center

Infrastructure resources are the subject of many contentious public policy debates, including what to do about crumbling roads and bridges, whether and how to protect our natural environment, energy policy, even patent law reform, universal health care, network neutrality regulation and the future of the Internet. Brett Frischmann — professor at Cardozo Law School and author of the new book "Infrastructure: The Social Value of Shared Resources" — discusses how society benefits from infrastructure resources and how decisions about how infrastructure is managed can affect everyone.
