Dear ESDSWG members,
It appears that Congress was not able to reach an agreement on the budget and avert a government shutdown by midnight EDT. As a result, I am officially canceling the ESDSWG meeting. I realize that the delay was a significant inconvenience for many of you and I appreciate your patience while we tried to wait this out. Once the shutdown is over and we are able to return to work, we will immediately begin work on an alternate plan to keep the ESDSWG moving forward. Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
