Looming Government Shutdown

With Congress yet to reach an agreement or pass government funding for Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 and the FY 2023 ending on September 30, the government could shut down as early as midnight on Saturday. While the House of Representatives and Senate are working on differing solutions to avert a government shutdown, neither chamber’s current proposal seems likely to pass both chambers. Without swift action and agreement between Republicans and Democrats, the federal government will shut down.

NPGA expects Congress to work until the September 30 deadline to keep the government open. If Congress fails to pass government funding, only essential functions can continue. NPGA’s regulatory team has been in contact with relevant agencies to ensure continuity of operations and seek specific guidance resulting from the impending shutdown. At this time, NPGA’s regulatory team does not anticipate any changes to its activities as a consequence of the shutdown.
