Brewer: Both Sides To Blame For Shutdown

October 02, 2013

As the shutdown of the federal government enters its second day, Gov. Jan Brewer says she and her staff are keeping the pressure on Washington to break the logjam. The governor says both sides are to blame and that there are several places where the shutdown is impacting Arizona.

“We’re going to have probably some impacts with our National Guard and employees there, to the tune of about probably 1,400,” Brewer said. “We’ve got concerns over at DES in regards to the WIC program. We have issues with food for the elderly.”

Brewer says state officials are doing everything they can to make sure the impact of the shutdown is minimal.
