NRLB Cancels Hearings, NRC Warns of Budget Shortfall in Shutdown’s Second Week

Capitol_BuildingSeveral government agencies face challenges as the shutdown enters its second week with no end to the budget standoff in sight, Federal News Radio reported Monday.

Jack Moore writes the National Labor Relations Board cancelled its hearings indefinitely on unfair labor practices and representation elections.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission warned that it could exhaust funds that are needed to remain operational by Wednesday, according to a FedBizOpps notice.

Jennifer Smith, acting associate commissioner of the General Services Administration‘s public buildings service, said the agency expects private-sector landlords to continue serving federal tenants amid the shutdown.

“Assuming the current funding lapse is brief, GSA’s ability to make timely rental payments will not be affected,” Smith told landlords in a letter obtained by Federal News Radio.

Kenneth Shutika, GSA deputy director of the energy division, said in a statement that government buildings are able to incur bills on utility services only if the charges predate the shutdown.
