2019 Federal Budget

The end of the year is approaching, and while that might mean holiday music and vacations, it also means all eyes are on the federal budget.  If Congress and the White House don’t strike a deal, nine federal departments and several smaller agencies will run out of money and shut down at midnight on Friday.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has proposed a bill that would fund the government through February 8.  Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., both said Democrats would support the measure.  Hopefully sensible policy will reign this holiday season.  As McConnell said, no one wants to end the year the way it began – with a government shutdown.
