Friday, Jan. 11 12:01 AM Partial shutdown of federal govt ties record length, barring legislative action, with workers missing first paycheck – Partial shutdown of the federal govt continues, barring legislative action, with the most recent continuing resolution – agreed last month – expiring 21 Dec * Today is the 21st day of the shutdown, equaling the previous record longest, in 1995-1996 * 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, with today marking the first missed paycheck. 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)
