  • More than 600K federal employees are facing furloughs this week - March 19, 2024

If Congress fails to take action by the March 22 deadline, funding for agencies appropriated through six of the 12 annual must-pass spending bills—the departments of Defense, Treasury, Homeland Security, Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, State and other agencies—will expire. The remaining roughly 600,000 federal employees would remain on the job, as their agencies already received full-year appropriations.
