Government Shutdown Threat Averted For Now
The Latest Developments and Our Ongoing Pledge to Our Customers
In a sudden turn of events, the looming threat of a federal government shutdown was lifted just hours before the midnight deadline. Congress swiftly approved a temporary funding bill to keep government agencies open, and this measure is now awaiting President Joe Biden’s signature to become law. This unexpected development brings both relief and fresh insights into the situation that we, at Silencer Central, have been closely monitoring.
A Last-Minute Reprieve
The rushed funding package, passed by Congress, notably drops aid to Ukraine, a White House priority that had faced opposition from an increasing number of GOP lawmakers. However, it includes a significant increase in federal disaster assistance, totaling $16 billion, which meets President Biden’s full request. This funding bill is set to keep the government operational until November 17.
