It’s happened 17 times since the mid-1970’s, and federal agencies are once again preparing for the possibility of a government shutdown if Democrats and Republicans can’t make a deal before temporary funding comes to an end on April 29th.

The White House has instructed various governmental agencies to prepare for the event of a possible shutdown, but assured that it’s merely procedural and not a harbinger of things to come.
The main sticking points include Trump’s possible inclusion of funding for the border wall, as well as the battle over funding for Obamacare.
