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.
