Government Shutdown This Friday?

So you may have been reading or watching news coverage this week covering a potential government shutdown on Friday, 7 December, and thought, "Wait - I thought we received a full fiscal year (FY) 19 appropriation?".  Well, you would be correct - but just for the Departments of Defense, Education, Veterans Affairs, and Energy.  For the other governmental departments, a continuing resolution (CR) through 7 December was passed by Congress (and signed by the President) prior to the start of FY19.  Remember, Congress needs to pass 12 Appropriations Acts each FY:

- Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies

- Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies

- Defense

- Energy and Water Development, and Related Agencies

- Financial Services and General Government

- Homeland Security

- Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies

- Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies

- Legislative Branch

- Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies

- State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs

- Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies

As such, Congress has until midnight Friday, 7 December, to either pass all remaining appropriations acts for FY19 or vote to pass another CR.  Otherwise, those departments who are funded under the remaining 7 appropriations acts will be forced to shut down.
