Will the government shut down again?

SmartBrief on Business & Politics | Apr 24, 2017

Spending authority for the federal government runs out at the end of this week, forcing Congress to act on legislation to keep the government operating until new appropriations can be approved. President Donald Trump is insisting that the stop-gap bill contain new funding as well, including money for his proposed border wall with Mexico, which will likely draw no support from Democrats. Failure to pass a bill in time will likely force a partial shutdown of federal programs and facilities, as happened in 2013. This week's question: Will the government shut down again? Cast your vote below. We'll have the results for you on Friday.
