Can I contact my member of Congress durning the shut down?

Most members of Congress will operate with a reduced staff. U.S. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., will close his Syracuse district office and have limited staff at his Washington, D.C., office.

U.S. Rep. Dan Maffei, D-Syracuse, said his offices will have rotating furloughs, but a skeleton staff will remain on duty. His Syracuse office will remain open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The Auburn and Oswego district offices will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on rotating days, starting with the Auburn office today and Wednesday. The Oswego office will be open Thursday and Friday.

Maffei's office on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., will be open regular hours from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, but the staff will be reduced due to the rotating furloughs.

U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna, R-Barneveld, will close his district offices in Utica and Binghamton. Phone calls will be redirected to the Washington, D.C., office where 60 percent of the staff is furloughed.
