TKC BREAKING NEWS PLAYLIST!!! NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT DELAY WORSENS AMID GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN!!!
The pricey, smaller and very controversial new Kansas City airport hinges on the approval of a vast byzantine arrangement of government agencies that aren't making any progress during the current shut down.
Just one example out of many . . . The city is waiting on an environmental report from the Federal Aviation Administration and now most of the employees from that agency are on furlough.
To wit . . .

This might be both a blessing and a curse but it's a fact that the shut down impacts biz beyond government workers and now threatens a great many local construction, labor and marking jobs connected to what will be the biggest project (and boondoggle) Kansas City has ever witnessed.
To wit, here's a look at shut down news from today's cycle . . .
