How Affected Would Washington State Be in a Government Shutdown?
When you hear things like "the government is closing," what does that mean for you and the state you live in? WalletHub compared Washington, D.C., with every other state to see how each state would be affected by the closings.
Naturally, Washington, D.C., is the most affected. But Washington state is about right in the middle at 23rd.
Things that play into this list are federal jobs, federal contract dollars, percentage of kids on CHIP, small business lending, real estate and national parks.
Washington came in fifth place for highest small business lending per capita. That certainly played into this.
