T-Minus 11 Hours Until Potential Federal Government Shutdown

It’s Friday, January 19, at 1 PM EST in Washington, D.C., with the current Continuing Resolution (CR) scheduled to lapse in 11 hours. The House has passed another CR that would extend funding until February 16, but whether (or not) the Senate passes this bill (or something comparable to keep funding going) is anyone’s guess at this point in time. A recent story from today talks about a meeting later this afternoon between President Trump and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), but who knows how this meeting will turn out as each side seems to be willing to blame the other. The national media is covering this budget debate in great detail, so listen to your local television or radio station to find out what happens by midnight tonight or over the weekend.
