Government Shutdown Averted Until December

The President recently signed a four-week continuing resolution (H.R. 3055) for government funding, which was passed by Congress as negotiations over funding for 2020 are ongoing. The short-term funding package moves the deadline for a possible government shutdown to December 20.

Legislators have reportedly come to an agreement on top-line spending levels for 2020, which reduces the chance for a late December government shutdown. However, several contentious funding-related issues have yet to be resolved, and another short-term deal moving the completion of the funding process to early 2020 may be required.
