Congress is responsible for passing annual appropriations to fund government agencies. If Congress neglects to pass funding bills, government agencies are forced to shut down. Follow all of Federal News Radio's government shutdown coverage from the past several years.
We don't know when the next government shutdown will begin. Or when this one will end. It could be two weeks, or not until another five or 10 years, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. In the meantime, here are some survival tips from vets of the shutdown wars...
The Defense Department says it's decided it has the legal authority to bring most of its civilian workforce back from furlough even as a government shutdown persists. But the Pentagon warned that unless the shutdown ends soon, many of those employees will have nothing to do.
The Defense Department is ordering most of its approximately 400,000 furloughed civilian employees back to work.

Think you've seen the worst effects of the government shutdown? Think again, says former DHS CHCO Jeff Neal. As time goes by, more people will be impacted.
Through its interviews, Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Emily Kopp recounts how feds endured their first week of furloughs caused by the government shutdown.
Inside the Reporter's Notebook: OMB adds clarity to new cyber policy; Cyber risks during shutdown overstated; OASIS delayed inde
The White House is finalizing its first major cybersecurity policy in more than three years.
The House approved a bill to ensure furloughed federal workers receive backpay once the government shutdown ends. The vote on the Federal Employee Retroactive Pay Fairness Act was 407-0. Twenty-five members didn't vote. The measure now moves to the Senate, where it is expected to pass. Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) had introduced a Senate version of the bill earlier this week.
Organizations postponed several large conferences earlier this week after the government shutdown. More than 100 other events are scheduled in October in the Washington area, and could be in jeopardy if the partial closure of the government continues.
When life hands you lemons ... You know how the saying goes, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says. But what happens when life hands you -- and about 800,000 of your co-workers -- something else. Say, one of the world's stinkiest fruits.
Many feds are also confused and concerned about how the shutdown -- especially if it's prolonged -- will affect their benefits. Federal News Radio dug through guidance provided by the Office of Personnel Management and other agencies and consulted with the experts to bring you some of the answers to the most-asked questions.
Managing what's left of the office during a government shutdown can be difficult, but keeping morale high and refocusing the agency's agenda is critical in shutdown mode.
In White House meeting, Obama tells lawmakers he still won't negotiate on funding government
Even though government agencies are in shutdown mode, contractors are still moving ahead in making business decisions. Small businesses are likely to hurt more from the shutdown due to smaller cash reserves and slimmer margins.
President Barack Obama met with congressional leaders for the first time since the shutdown began, but they made no progress in developing an agreement that would reopen the government.
While 800,000 furloughed federal workers are wondering how they are going to make ends meet, members of the House and Senate who allowed the shutdown to happen are living large and high on Capitol Hill, Senior Correspondent Mike Causey says.
We asked you how you felt about the shutdown of the federal government and you let us know through social media, email and story comments. Keep sharing your comments -- and photos -- with Federal News Radio.
U.S. intelligence officials say the government shutdown is seriously damaging the intelligence community's ability to guard against threats. But they also say they're keeping counterterrorism staff on duty, while they are worried about morale.
With day one of the government shutdown over, furlough notices are out and some feds have been sent home. But the answers aren't as clear cut as they might seem, as employees at one federal agency have discovered.
President Obama signed a bill at the dawn of the government shutdown, and it could significantly increase the number of non-uniformed military employees exempt from furlough during the shutdown. So far, the Defense Department has sent no signals on how it would choose to enact the provisions.
