Funding for the entire U.S. government expires Nov. 22 at 12:01 a.m. unless Congress acts. While progress on forging a budget agreement has been slow, congressional aides say there is movement toward approving a short-term spending plan that keeps the government running into December.
Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein told a Capitol Hill audience in Washington, D.C., Nov. 6, 2019, that unpredictable funding has both short-term and long-term effects, complicating readiness, training, planning and other activities necessary to meet missions.
