As of midnight, October 1st, the U.S. House and Senate had not agreed on a budget, and the federal government is now implementing a partial shut down for the first time since 1995-1996.
On Tuesday Forbes listed Dayton as one of the top ten cities at risk during a government shutdown. Civilian workers at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base bear the immediate brunt: approximately 8,700 non-military staff at Wright-Patt received furlough letters Tuesday morning.
DAYTON, OH - An incomplete application for federal funding means clients of an Ohio Planned Parenthood chapter will now pay for services that were free.
The Dayton Daily News reports the error will cost Planned Parenthood Southwest Ohio Region more than $5 million dollars over the next five years.
The funding loss is expected to primarily affect low-income clients in four counties. They made up nearly 45 percent of Planned Parenthood visitors in 2010.
The Cincinnati-based chapter does not plan any layoffs and hopes to make up the shortfall with private fund raising.
