Currently, it appears that around 25% of the US government is shutdown. To the best of my understanding, this is because different departments funding expires at different times. What does the timeline, both in terms of departments and percentage of government by spending, look like going forward as to department shutdowns?
Congress has passed H.R5895 and H.R6157 with Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) appropriations for these departments. Both bills are signed into law by President Trump.
- Department of Energy (funded by H.R.5895)
- Department of Veterans Affairs (funded by H.R.5895)
- Department of Defense (funded by H.R.6157)
- Department of Labor (funded by H.R.6157)
- Department of Health and Human Services (funded by H.R.6157)
- Department of Education (funded by H.R.6157)
The federal government’s fiscal year begins on October 1 every year, per the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974. Thus, the funding for these departments will expire on September 30, 2019.
For reference, these are the departments currently shut down, due to a lack of appropriations:
- Department of the Treasury
- Department of Agriculture
- Department of Homeland Security
- Department of the Interior
- Department of State
- Department of Housing and Urban Development
- Department of Transportation
- Department of Commerce
- Department of Justice
