Federal shutdown closes Corps of Engineers regulatory offices

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it is closing its regulatory offices in Minnesota and Wisconsin because of the federal government shutdown.

The Corps’ St. Paul District cited the lack of available federal funding in announcing the closing Tuesday.

According to the Corps, regulatory offices in Minnesota and Wisconsin won’t be able to review or issue permits for wetlands development until after federal money is received and the offices reopen.
