Partnership for Public Service pushes for the end of shutdowns forever

February 6, 2019

The Partnership for Public Service cited fallout from the 35-day partial government shutdown as all the evidence necessary for Congress and President Trump to avoid a repeat of recent history.
The two sides—at odds over border funding—have until Feb. 15 to strike a deal or again furlough federal employees, cease some government functions and curtail government contracts. The Partnership for Public Service, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group, also urged Congress to take up legislation that would prevent future shutdowns.
