WISCONSIN NEWS ROUND-UP: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closing offices due to shutdown
ST. PAUL - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is closing its regulatory offices in Wisconsin and Minnesota because of the federal government shutdown.
The corps says the facilities will not consider-or-issue permits for developing wetlands, due to a lack of funding. The agency says it won't resume those activities until the shutdown has ended. It started its third week today.
