Ohio is bracing for the potential consequences of a looming government shutdown, from workers who live paycheck to paycheck to program directors worried about further impacts for already dwindling services for low-income clients.
Other government services, such as mail delivery and Social Security benefits, would remain in tact.
Impacts on other programs aren't yet known and largely would depend on how long a potential shutdown would last.
