****ing expired is what it is. Thanks to the government shutdown. ****ing idiot politicians. And you are the only person I've heard even mention it.

From what I've heard, here's the highlights of the worst effects:

Lack of disaster insurance for livestock.
US Forest service will only get half of what they were expected to get if it would have passed.
FDA food inspection is running at about half its resources. But surprisingly, the drug inspection side of the FDA wasn't reduced.
Many USDA laws and regulations with revert to 1940s standards at the end of the year. Yikes.
The CDC is significantly reduced for the time being. Let's hope there's no zombie outbreak during the shutdown.

Hopefully they'll get around to passing a bill sometime in the next 10 years or so....
