The government ends its activities when discretionary federal discretionary programs are closed. The president must do this when the Congress does not allocate funds. In the normal budgetary process, the Congress allocates funds before September 30 for the next fiscal year. If this does not happen, Congress will adopt a resolution of ongoing funding. If Congress cannot reach an agreement, it forces a halt. This indicates a complete breakdown of the budget process.
In the United States, the government stands still when Congress fails to skip sufficient payment accounts or resolutions to fund federal government activities and agencies, or the president refuses to promote such bills or resolutions. In such cases, the current interpretation of the anti-deficiency law requires the federal government to start "stopping" the relevant activities about non-essential personnel leave and the reduction of agency activities and services.
The partial United States government shutdown in October affected about one-third of all public services, including the justice system. Due to the stalemate between President Barack Obama and the Republican leadership, federal courts announced that they would be delaying civil cases, which caused a tremendous concern amongst legal professionals.Comments
