About our US Government Shutdowns news

Latest news on US government shutdowns, providing comprehensive coverage of the ongoing political battles, impact on federal services, and the looming deadlines that could result in partial shutdowns, including the recent developments in March 2024.

The United States Congress is responsible for passing appropriations bills to fund the federal government and keep it fully operational. The NewsNow feed on US government shutdowns brings you the most up-to-date information on the progress of these negotiations and the potential consequences of any delays or disagreements between lawmakers.

In March 2024, Congress faced a critical deadline to pass spending bills and prevent a partial government shutdown. Disagreements between Democrats and Republicans, particularly over border security funding, led to intense negotiations. The House of Representatives passed a $1.2 trillion spending package on 22 March, followed by the Senate in the early hours of 23 March, narrowly avoiding a shutdown. The bill, which funds the federal government through September 2024, was signed into law by President Biden on 23 March.

Despite this recent success in preventing a shutdown, the threat of future shutdowns remains a concern. The NewsNow feed keeps you informed about the latest developments on Capitol Hill, including the efforts of Congressional leaders to unite their parties and navigate potential objections from individual lawmakers.
