Federal reports begin again as government reopens
Agencies that produce federal reports such as construction spending, construction employment, housing starts and diesel fuel prices reopened Thursday following a 16-day shutdown of the federal government.
Most reports stopped in the first week of October.
Our sister site, Better Roads, reports that Congress and the White House have passed a temporary spending measure that will allow federal government agencies to remain open through January 15. The measure also extends the debt limit through February 7.
The Senate reached the agreement Wednesday afternoon. A New York Times report notes that the House passed the measure at 10:15 p.m. Wednesday, and President Obama signed it into law around 12:30 a.m. Thursday.
Among the agencies that reopened today are the U.S. Department of Transportation, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the U.S. Department of Commerce and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA).
