Tom Shoop, Editor in Chief, Government Executive

The effort to fund the Homeland Security Department is in chaos this afternoon. The House rejected a three-week continuing resolution after observers spent most of the day trying to figure out what the backup plan was -- without much success. Tom Shoop is Editor in Chief at Government Executive magazine. He broke down the odds of Congress passing a DHS budget on In Depth with Francis Rose.

Robert Autry, President, AFGE Local 4060

Funding for DHS expires at midnight tonight, which means Congress is quickly running out of time to pass another continuing resolution. If they don't do it today, nearly 30,000 employees will be furloughed. Among the hardest hit will be FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Robert Autry, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 4060, which represents FEMA headquarters employees here in Washington, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to further explain how a shutdown would impact the agency.

But DHS is preparing for the worst. Chris Cummiskey was acting undersecretary for management at DHS during the government shutdown in 2013. On In Depth with Francis Rose, he told Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp what DHS managers are doing to prepare.

DHS Secretary Johnson baffled by 'absurd' budget conversation

A vote in the Senate could come as early as Thursday on a bill that would fund the Homeland Security Department beyond this Friday. If passed, the bill would still have to clear the House, before being sent to the President's desk. While Congress was busy making moves Wednesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson went on the offensive to ensure Congress doesn't shut down his department. 30,000 DHS workers would be sent home and the trickle-down effect on state and local governments and law enforcement organizations would worsen if Congress doesn't pass a bill, Johnson said.

Heidi Burakiewicz, Partner, Mehri & Skalet PLLC

Stop us if you've heard this before. Congress, divided over policy, threatens to let funding lapse for federal agencies. That would cause furloughs for some, and working without pay for others. The last time it happened, federal employees had grounds for a lawsuit over violations of labor law. Could it happen again for Homeland Security employees? As part of this week's Legal Loop, Heidi Burakiewicz, a partner at the law firm Mehri & Skalet, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive with some answers.
