House passes bill to keep government open

House passes bill to keep government open

But the bill only addressed that shutdown, so Trump would have to pass something similar again this year.

January 19, 2018 -Congress has until midnight to pass a budget or risk a government shutdown. And who are the political winners and losers?

"The reason [the shutdown] ends up costing us money is that a lot of things don't get done during that shutdown", Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget told Marketplace previous year. Now the onus will be on the Democrats -if there's another government shutdown.

House Republicans engineered a showdown over the Affordable Care Act, insisting that a spending bill to avoid a shutdown include measures to roll back key parts of then-President Barack Obama's health care law.

The Senate, which was controlled by Democrats, rejected both measures. If Congress can't come to an agreement by Friday, the federal government will shut down. Will they keep working? "The bigger question is how long it lasts".

The shutdown went into effect on October 1, 2013, the first day of the new fiscal year.

Did the entire government shutdown?

Republicans are calling the current standoff the "Schumer Shutdown", arguing that there's nothing in the bill that Democrats oppose, while a short-term extension would give lawmakers time to work out differences on issues like protecting young immigrants and disaster assistance.

While most federal entities will have to implement shutdown plans if an extension of the continuing budget resolution is not approved by midnight Friday, judiciary workers "should report to work as normal" on Monday, according to a Wednesday memorandum from James C. Duff, director of the Administrative Office of the United State Courts.

Apply a "many, but not all" philosophy to government functions.

There are 360,000 federal workers in the DMV region, according to the Federal Reserve.

As a result, various government services will come to a halt, including national parks, museums, and zoos, along with government bureaus like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the US Census Bureau, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Whoever works for agencies and departments that are considered nonessential, including agencies that pay out small business loans and process passport requests, will cease to work until Congress is able to agree on a bill for the federal budget.

That's not to say that these agencies won't have to furlough some of their workforce. In 2013, 50 workers at the Defense Supply Center Columbus were furloughed.

Fewer than half of civilian federal workers will be forced off the job.

While shutting down the sprawling bureaucracy of the federal government might seem like a way to save money, the truth is a government shutdown is costly, although estimates for just how costly differ. They work in places like the commissary, the military equivalent of a grocery store, and other roles that support the base's average daily population of 85,000, according to Capt. Brian Villiard, a base public affairs officer.

How much did this cost the economy?

Overseas, U.S. embassies also have "essential" staff members who will continue to perform basic duties; however, the State Department has not elaborated on what duties it could still perform in the event of a shutdown. $24 billion in lost economic activity.
