Memo to Chamber Members on a Potential Extended Government Shutdown
Neil Bradley, Executive Vice President, Chief Policy Officer, and Head of Strategic Advocacy, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
Despite the fact that the Biden Administration and Congressional leaders from both parties in the House and Senate want to avoid a government shutdown, there is a substantial consensus that a shutdown will occur at the beginning of the fiscal year on October 1, 2023.
If a government shutdown does occur, it is likely to be significant in duration with no clear path for reopening the government.
The U.S. Chamber is providing more detail about the possible length of a shutdown and the implications for the business community and the economy so that our members can prepare accordingly.
