Government Shutdown Averted Two New Deadlines Await in 2024

A continuing resolution passed by Congress on Nov. 14 extends the shutdown deadline into early 2024. The bill keeps funding at 2023 levels without making deep cuts to spending. It’s the second continuing resolution since fiscal year 2024 began. The new continuing resolution sets up two new deadlines for Congress to act: Jan. 19 and Feb. 2. A shutdown is different than default, the scenario the U.S. narrowly averted just months ago. The government is expected to shut down in early 2024 unless Congress acts to prevent that from happening. By Coshorts
