Not much optimism regarding shutdown
Opinions ranged from pessimistic to uncertain when area legislators were asked if they saw an end to the state shutdown which is beginning its second week.
Rep. Larry Howes, R-Walker, is certain there’s a way out of the impasse but it hasn’t been found yet.
“If it (the shutdown) goes another two weeks it will be tough,” he said. “If it goes to State Fair time, I see it going to January.”
