US Representative Kristi Noem says she is continuing to make progress in re-opening the government. She has plans to visit the white house on Thursday to speak with the President.

The Government shutdown is now in its second week, and in the views of the American public, little progress seems to have been made at this point. Noem says it’s very important for President Obama to communicate at this critical time.
