Update on Potential Government Shutdown: The House and Senate continue to negotiate plans to prevent a lapse in appropriations (or a government shutdown). I remain committed to supporting a budget that significantly cuts Washingtons out-of-control spending and reverses the uncertain environment that currently exists for American workers and job creators. On Thursday, April 7, I voted to support legislation that would fund the military through the remainder of the year. The failure of the President and the Senate to fund our military is inexcusable while our country is engaged in three wars.

Please refer below to a list of commonly asked questions regarding a government shutdown. Please note that the Executive Branch determines which Executive Branch operations and programs are carried out during a government shutdown.
