Federal News Network reporter Drew Friedman fills in for Tom this week. Congress has just a few days to pass appropriations or a continuing resolution. and if there is a government shutdown at the end of the week, it’ll take some planning and a little knowledge of what to expect. Former Postal Service manager Abe Grungold has been through more than one lapse in government appropriations. He recently spoke with Tom Temin to offer some advice.
Plus, “are we headed to a government shutdown?” Is there any other question this morning? With just days for Congress to reach a spending agreement, and no end in sight, many feds are looking for answers on what would happen to their pay, benefits and much more, in the case of a shutdown. I walked through the answers with Federal Drive producer Eric White.
