Corporate > AG Deal Diary > An Update on the SEC’s Operations During the Government Shutdown
01 Oct '13

As reported in the media, SEC spokesman John Nester said yesterday that the agency has “carryover funds” that are sufficient to allow it  to remain open for “a few weeks” despite the government shutdown. The SEC is fully open today and that will continue until further notice. Although there is no guarantee that the agency will remain fully open for “a few weeks,” at least the agency is up and running in the near term and we have an idea of what the agency seems to think is possible in the event of an extended government shutdown.
