The director of the Florida National Cemetery says if the government shutdown doesn't end by October 22nd, national cemeteries will have to reduce the number of veterans they can bury every day, furlough employees and limit the care they give to gravesites.
Officials say October 22nd is when the money already allocated to the national cemeteries will run out.
At the Florida National Cemetery, that would mean reducing the number of funerals by as much as one-third.
