Federal Government Shutdown is Possible


Posted on: 1/19/2018

The Federal government's current funding agreement deadline is this evening. Absent a new agreement, the federal government will enter into shutdown protocols beginning Monday morning.

Under a bipartisan agreement that was signed by President Trump on December 22nd, the federal government received enough funding to remain open and operational through this evening. The agreement gave lawmakers additional time to negotiate funding and policy issues that have remained unresolved for some time, and absent another short-term funding agreement the government will be forced to shutdown.

Spending bills related to healthcare that remain unsettled in Congress and are impeding progress toward a funding agreement include:

• A long-term extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

• Repeal of certain healthcare-related taxes

ACMA will continue to keep you updated on the latest healthcare related issues from Capitol Hill.
