SALEM, Ore. (AP) — State officials are evaluating what impact a partial shutdown of the federal government would have for Oregon.

State agencies were asked this week to submit information about cash flows for federally funded programs. Brian DeForest, the state's deputy chief financial officer, told the Statesman Journal newspaper (http://is.gd/LrMl8z) that the state can endure a shutdown of about 30 days.

It's uncertain how many of the 28,000 federal workers in Oregon would be affected by a partial shutdown of government operations

House Republicans on Saturday moved the government closer to a shutdown, insisting that President Barack Obama's health care law be delayed a year.
