United States Access Board a casualty of the Federal Government Shut-Down

From an email I received this morning:

Because of the absence of a Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 appropriation, the Access Board is compelled to "shut-down" its operations. All Access Board employees have been placed in a furlough status. During the shut-down we will not be providing the following services:
  • Complaint processing under the Architectural Barriers Act
  • Guidelines and standards development
  • Webinars
  • Training
  • Technical assistance
  • Website maintenance and updates
  • Publications fulfillment
We will return to work once a continuing resolution or an FY 2014 appropriation has been signed into law.
