Families who are unemployed will have no foods and cash assistance to pay their monthly rents right after the shutdown take place. I wonder if this crisis hit those decision makers' families..?.. how would they feel it?

Do they think about having several shelters set up before the shutdown happen..? Families on public assistance will face the first hit....! Will state capital be a shelter for people to come in for foods and accommodation during the shutdown. ?

Please post this comment to state law makers...! If they have any plan for no income families on public assistance.

With love and care for families on public assistance

Governor must have absolute power by constitution to mandate government's critical services to public safety remained open during budget disputes between law makers and governor.

If this type of mandate is not exist in constitution what type of public safety option will have for our community and neighborhood. ..?

If state government shutdown dose take place. It will have a big impact toward single mothers and families losing their jobs or unable to attend their work schedules by losing child care, which they got subsidize child care from counties. This will create a big impact toward businesses operation and families self-sufficiency. That will create more crisis and government will have to spend more money on those crisis. Now before representing rich people interest please do consider those bad consequences that will threat our community and neighborhood safety.

Let work for public with a great honor heart ,,,!
