Wednesday, Jan. 09 12:01 AM Partial shutdown of federal govt continues, barring legislative action – Partial shutdown of the federal govt continues, barring legislative action, with the most recent continuing resolution – agreed last month – expiring 21 Dec * Over 800,000 federal employees are impacted by the shutdown, with around 400,000 furloughed and being paid later, and the rest deemed ‘essential’ (those whose jobs ‘protect life and property’), who must work without pay, though retroactive pay is expected. The shutdown sees closures to federal facilities, and probably delays passport and visa applications and tax returns, 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)
