U.S. Commerce Department would not publish data if government shuts down

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Commerce Department would not publish any economic data in the event the government were to shut down, a spokeswoman for the department said on Friday.

“In the event of a shutdown, no economic indicators will be issued,” said spokeswoman, Sarah Horowitz.
