Shutdown derails family's travel plans

Posted: Updated:
CRANSTON, R.I. -

The partial government shutdown is hurting Southern New England businesses, and laid-off workers are feeling the brunt.

But even people who are still getting paid are paying a price.

Betty Jordan had planned a trip with her daughter, Shannon, who's in the Army. But it's been canceled because of the shutdown.

"From a military person's point of view, family, to spend any time with family is gold," Jordan said.

The shutdown sent Jordan's daughter back to her post in Hawaii from a school assignment in South Carolina without a visit to New England.

They were planning a trip to California to see Jordan's grandson.
