No Clear Path to Avoiding a Government Shutdown

"Congressional leaders in both parties made clear there is no clear path forward in avoiding a government shutdown in just over 18 days," NBC News reports.

"Lawmakers appear as far apart as ever on reaching an agreement to fund the government past the end of September, after which all but the most essential government services would cease for lack of money. Though Congress has been aware for months of the need to reach an agreement to sustain funding past Sept. 30, consensus has been as elusive as ever."
