WVII Interviews Brewer about Effects of Shutdown on Mainers

WVII (Channel 7) spoke with Mark Brewer, an associate professor of political science at the University of Maine, about a report released following an evaluation by WalletHub, a personal finance social network, that ranked Maine fifth in the nation for being “at-risk” during the federal government shutdown. Brewer said Maine is more at risk because it has a high population of elderly and veteran residents who rely on government services. He also said the longer the shutdown continues, the bigger effect it will have on all residents.
