What did you think of this review?
Congress would force a government shutdown on April 8, 2011 if their plan to reduce the U.S. federal budget deficit is not resolved. This could leave 800,000 furloughed workers without a job, out of 2 million civilian federal employees. Congressional leaders will meet on April 7, 2011 to agree on budget cuts in an effort to stave off a government shutdown; but an agreement looks difficult. Federal agencies are already beginning preparations for potential closures.
House Republicans advanced legislation Thursday to avoid a government shutdown for one more week.
