North Central eyes federal shutdown possibility

September 25, 2013

It's been 18 years since the last federal government shutdown but officials at North Central are watching intently, hoping the issue is resolved.
The U.S. House of Representatives approved a short-term continuing resolution to fund federal programs at the current spending level through Dec. 15. Of the resolution's three elements, it continues funding at an annual level of $986.3 billion; second, it includes language to block implementation of the 2010 Affordable Care Act; third, it continues debt payments if the debt ceiling is not raised.
The Senate advanced legislation to prevent a partial government shutdown on Wednesday but any differences between the two houses' legislation must be reconciled and the bill signed into law by next Tuesday to avert a partial shutdown.
