DC to stay open if government shutdown occurs

  • Wolf Blitzer senator spar over shutdown

Capitol Lounge: $5 "shutdown cocktails" with colorful names like "C'mon Chuck" and "Durbin Soda" will be available for those who show a federal employee ID. Talks on a budget deal to ease tight spending limits on both the Pentagon and domestic agencies are on hold, as is progress on a huge $80 billion-plus disaster aid bill.

Senator Tester said he would not let Washington fail Montana anymore.

CHILDREN: Six Head Start programs in Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and SC serving about 6,300 children shut for nine days, the OMB said. "The budget ran out in September of a year ago".

Schumer - who met with Trump Friday to try to find a way out of the stalemate - said he and Trump made progress toward a compromise in a Friday afternoon meeting. "None. Instead, they have proposed four short-term, crisis-funding bills that fail Montanans".

For Montana, that means restricted access to national parks, but services like Social Security and airport operations will remain functioning.

That translated into less disposable income for the region as a whole, leaving restaurants, shopping malls and other businesses with lower profits and sending fewer tax dollars into local government coffers for schools and other services.

Democrats had been pushing a solution for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and insisted that it be addressed before the Friday deadline - and the two parties were unable to reach an agreement.

This includes any federal government work related to national security, law and order, and emergency life-and-death services.

While a shutdown is undesirable, not all federally funded organizations will grind to a halt, but many will.

But aside from these cut-and-dry cases, there is no hard-and-fast rule as to which services are considered "essential".

So what happens to employees that have to work but aren't getting paid?

Facebook turns to users to identify and rank trustworthy news platforms
This means that the social network's own members may have nobody to blame but themselves for low-quality content. Soon, Facebook says you will see more status updates from friends and family and fewer articles and videos.

Montana community healthcare providers like RiverStone Health in Billings may be hurt, according to Senator Tester.

Also continuing are programs that don't rely on annual funding approval from Congress, including Social Security, Medicare and social programs.

However, Barbara Schneeman of Riverstone Health had a different take.

The federal government ends up paying for work that simply didn't get done.

The CFTC would face the most direct impact, having to furlough 95 per cent of its employees immediately. However things won't be so smooth behind the scenes-the FAA's certification of new aircraft may be slowed if the shutdown continues, and furloughed aviation safety inspectors will have to be brought back to work as needed to make sure airline operations remain safe.

Mail delivery: The post office will be open, and your mail will be delivered, because the U.S. Postal Service has its own revenue stream. National parks All national parks would be closed, as would the Smithsonian museums.

National parks and museums may be closed, however, the Interior Department said it will work to keep these "as accessible as possible" unlike in the 2013 shutdown.

But the specific impact depends on the length of the shutdown, and how the federal government decides to implement it, says Legislative Fiscal Officer Ken Rocco. Backcountry lands and culturally sensitive sites are likely to be restricted or closed, she said.

On-base facilities: Most on-base facilities will remain open including on-base schools medical facilities, mess halls, gyms, and child care facilities would be open. State departments and agencies not listed would continue to operate. Following previous shutdowns, such as the one in 2013, Congress has passed legislation that reimburses furloughed workers for back pay.

►While it's not known exactly how numerous approximately 26,000 non-postal federal employees in MI would be told not to report for work Monday if the shutdown is still going, a number of them are expected to still be on the job, including a portion of the 9,200 or so people who are active duty military or civil employees for the Defense Department at the Detroit Arsenal, Selfridge Air National Guard Base and elsewhere.
