I have read thru it. The only acronym that comes to mind from it is SOL.
The states will be on their own for the most part.
I am prepared to stay at home for at least 1 month. Its not food and water that worries me as much as the financial aspect.
One of the main plans is to close the schools to slow the spread of any virus outbreak (actually a good idea). I don't have the financial means right now to be out for 2 months. I don't know how they would work salaries and such.
There is approzimately 14,000 employees for all the school districts in the El Paso area. That would be a big impact on the economy. I would imagine they would jsut extend the school year into the summer to cover the time missed.
