Farm Service Agency on furlough

Farm Service Agency in Washington, above, is closed because of the lapse in federal funding. About 10 employees have been furloughed, and lights in the FSA portion of the building are off. NRCS, which occupies part of the building, remains open. Those who want to make payments to FSA can mail checks, but payments won’t be deposited until the entity re-opens.
