A Matter of Facts: Government Shutdown

Americans have become more familiar with federal government shutdowns in the past year. We’ve experienced three shutdowns in 2018/2019 for a combined total of 17 days and counting, and no one can forget the 16-day shutdown in 2013. What makes the current shutdown different is that it’s a partial shutdown with only 25 percent of the federal government going unfunded. This blog post provides information and resources for better understanding the issues related to the shutdown.

Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota.  Interest was so great that after full capacity was reached in Northrop Auditorium, accommodations were made for a screening at Williams Arena on campus. The speech was also broadcast live on KUOM radio stations throughout the Twin Cities.
