What the federal government shutdown means for the next transportation bill
from Safe Routes to School National Partnership
After Congress and the President were unable to agree on a deal to continue funding for federal agencies and programs through the annual appropriations process, the federal government was shut down and non-essential employees were sent home. The disagreement has extended to include the federal debt limit, which Congress must raise by mid-October or risk the federal government defaulting on its obligations. The shutdown has short-term and long-term consequences for transportation.
