Federal government in jeopardy of another shutdown soon

Another possible government shutdown is on the horizon.

Some Lawmakers in Washington D.C. are running around our nation’s capital scrambling to find a way to make sure the federal government stays funded. 

Congress has until this Friday to pass funding to prevent federal government work from grinding to a screeching halt. 

This marks the second time in as many months that the government has begun preparations for the chance that the government could shut down. 

Millions of civilian workers as well as military personnel, including some in Missouri, could be sent home or forced to work without pay if Congress does not pass funding.

The last government shutdown was averted hours before the deadline as then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy put a stopgap measure on the floor, which caused him the speakership.
