As of midnight on December 21, 2018, portions of the government have been shut down until Congress is able to pass a spending bill. Due to ongoing political fights surrounding the border wall, it remains unclear when the government will be fully operational again. In addition to the 400,000 government workers the Washington Post anticipates will be furloughed without pay during the shutdown, the closure of large portions of the federal government also has implications for government contractors. Our previous post on the implications of a shutdown on federal contractors is available here.
