The U.S. Congress came together this week, passing a resolution that reopened the government and raised the nation’s debt limit through early 2014.

With new federal budget deadlines set three months out, Georgia Tech is viewing the actions taken in Washington, D.C., as positive, but temporary measures, and is planning accordingly. The working group appointed by President Bud Peterson will continue to monitor the situation, develop scenarios based on the latest data and provide recommendations to help mitigate any operational impact, in the event of a full or partial shutdown in January.

"Because of the steps taken over the course of the past several weeks, we do not expect our federally funded research to suffer any significant long-term effects," said Peterson. "But to be safe, we will continue to carefully monitor the situation to ensure that we can continue to fulfill our educational, research and service missions to the best of our ability."
