Arch, Campgrounds Among Idled Missouri Facilities

Baseball fans arriving in St. Louis for the start of the playoffs this week can scratch off one potential side visit — the Gateway Arch. The lingering dispute over President Barack Obama’s health care law prompted a partial federal government shutdown Tuesday.

The shutdown idled many offices and facilities in Missouri, including Army Corps of Engineers-operated campgrounds, boat ramps and visitors centers.
