Congress begins to admit it’s running out of time to avoid a government shutdown


Congress is beginning to acknowledge that it is running out of time to avoid a government shutdown. With less than two weeks until the deadline to pass a government funding bill, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have expressed concerns that they may not be able to reach a deal before the September 30 deadline. This could result in a shutdown of the federal government if there is no deal in place. Despite the possibility of a shutdown, Congress is continuing to discuss the priorities that should be addressed in the government funding bill. These include topics such as border security, health care, and disaster relief funds.
