by Categorized: Economy, Government, Jobs, Politics, Public finance Date:

The Haar Report’s “CT Shutdown,” is a constantly updated wrap-up of what’s happening as non-essential federal employees remain off the job. Please leave comments with more information.

  • Sen Richard Blumenthal will donate his pay to Wounded Warriers during the shutdown:

  •  Rep. Jim Himes tweets that he’s not taking pay:

  • After the Coast Guard canceled an event…..

    On Wednesday, October 2, the United States Coast Guard Academy will be recognized by Connecticut Light & Power and the Energize Connecticut initiative (www.EnergizeCT.com) at a celebration for the opening of their newly constructed energy efficient chiller plant, which will distribute chilled water to campus buildings for air conditioning. USCGA received an $54,641 incentive from the Connecticut Energy Efficiency Fund for the new model, which will save them over 199,300 kWh/year.

…..The Courant’s Mara Lee tried to find out whether any civilian employees there have been furloughed.  A coast Guard spokesman referred all questions to Washington, DC, where no one answered at two media relations numbers.
