Dear Fellow Pennsylvanians:
Thank you for visiting my online office. Unfortunately, due to the absence of a congressional agreement on appropriations for Fiscal Year 2014, my Senate office is unable to maintain normal operations.
If you have an emergency involving federal benefits, such as those provided by the Veterans Administration or Social Security, please email our office at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to share information about how the federal government shutdown has impacted you, please email email@example.com.
I am sorry for any inconvenience this unfortunate situation may cause you. My staff and I look forward to continuing the excellent constituent service you expect when the federal government is fully funded.
