17 Days to End of Fiscal Year

Congress has gone home for the weekend with no new developments on reaching an agreement to fund the government after the fiscal year ends September 30th. It may be too early to talk about government shutdown, but just in case I thought I’d pull up the helpful 2011 FAQ from The Chronicle of Higher Education on what the impacts might be on higher education. We can certainly handle a shutdown for a few days if it comes to that – and today, with no action and no viable plan in sight, it certainly seems possible.
