Government Shutdown looms again

It's that time again - the current congressional continuing resolution expires at the end of this fiscal year, on September 30th, and not passing a new one will mean a government shutdown.

The House has already rejected a new plan after a disagreement about spending cuts and FEMA funds.   There will probably be a session this weekend to resolve the problem.

If the resolution gets through the House, we still have the Senate to satisfy, of course.  Which could reject the House's plan and send their own plan to the House.  All of this with only 8 days left.

These things tend to be akin to the boy who cried wolf, but it's something to keep an eye on as our neighborhood will probably be affected by a shutdown.

For more, see our posts from the last threat of a shutdown (feels like yesterday, doesn't it?):
