SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Spokane Regional Health District's six offices that are dedicated to its Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) nutrition program will remain open in light of the federal government shutdown.

WIC vouchers will still be issued and existing vouchers will still be good for use. WIC has supplemental budget dollars that can be "spent-forward" if the shutdown doesn't go on for too long.
