WASHINGTON — Shortly after the federal government officially shut down at midnight, Rep. Lee Terry was sitting in his office waiting for the next round of votes.
“It's unfortunate, something that I didn't want to have happen,” the Omaha Republican said of the shutdown. “But my hope is that we can resolve this very quickly and it will not significantly impact people.”
