If the government shuts down Friday night, it will happen one year to the day that President Donald Trump took office.
Congress has until midnight to pass a spending bill to avoid a government shutdown. In the event of a government shutdown, many federal agencies close and all non-essential federal employees are unable to work. National parks, monuments and museums also close.
Last night, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 230-197 to approve a four-week spending bill to avoid the shutdown, and the bill has now been passed on to the Senate.
This morning NEWSChannel 2 checked in with U.S. Rep. Claudia Tenney to discuss the possible shutdown. To hear what she had to say, watch the above video.
