Saturday, Dec. 22 12:01 AM Partial shutdown of federal govt amid dispute over border wall funding – Partial shutdown of the federal govt, with the most recent continuing resolution – agreed earlier this month – expiring late last night * Shutdown likely furloughs federal employees from work (except those whose jobs ‘protect life and property’), sees closures to federal facilities, and probably delays passport and visa applications, affecting departments and agencies included in the seven FY’19 appropriations bills that have not yet been enacted (including the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Treasury, Homeland Security, Interior, State, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development) * ‘H.R. 695’, which would extend funding through 8 Feb, passed the Senate on Wednesday night and was taken up by the House of Representatives on Thursday. The bill passed the House, largely along party lines (217-185), with the inclusion of $5.7 billion for the border wall, and went back to the Senate yesterday.

Sunday, Dec. 23 12:01 AM Partial shutdown of federal govt, amid dispute over border wall funding, continues – Partial shutdown of the federal govt continues, with the most recent continuing resolution – agreed earlier this month – expiring Friday night * Shutdown likely furloughs federal employees from work (except those whose jobs ‘protect life and property’), sees closures to federal facilities, and probably delays passport and visa applications, affecting departments and agencies included in the seven FY’19 appropriations bills that have not yet been enacted (including the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Justice, Treasury, Homeland Security, Interior, State, Transportation, and Housing and Urban Development) * ‘H.R. 695’, which would extend funding through 8 Feb, passed the Senate on Wednesday night and was taken up by the House of Representatives on Thursday, although some concerns existed over whether President Donald Trump would sign it after he previously said he would be ‘proud’ to cause a shutdown by rejecting any funding bill that does not include his requested $5 billion for his southern border wall
