Shutdown impacts local travel plans

Some local travelers are having to rearrange their itineraries because of the federal government shutdown.  That's caused short-staffing of Transportation Security Administration agents at some airports and forced the closure Saturday of Miami International Airport's Concourse G.  That impact is being felt nationwide.  Susan Wehrli, of Wehrli Travel in Sturgeon Bay, says the effects of the shutdown have forced some of her clients to make drastic changes to their travel plans.



Wehrli recommends those who will be flying to arrive at an airport at least three hours or more before takeoff to accommodate any delays in the security screening process.

Would you rather see the legislature increase the gas tax and receive funding from out-of-state visitors or increase the registration fee and only get more money from Wisconsin residents?
