Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said it's possible there will be a government shutdown at the end of this month.
A six-week continuing resolution did not pass the House in a vote today. The government runs out of funds on Sept. 30 if Congress does not pass a bill. What's more, lawmakers face a shortened deadline to sort out 2012 funding — Congress will be in recess all next week.
Russell Berman, a staff writer with The Hill newspaper, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss the latest from the halls of Congress.
The House approved a short-term spending measure Thursday after lawmakers rejected a similar bill earlier this week.
Bill Frenzel a global scholar of economics at Brookings Institution, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss perspective on what's happening on the Hill, and whether the government is facing a shutdown.
The threat of a Oct. 1 government shutdown is closer after the Senate rejected a short-term funding bill passed in the House that would keep government funded beyond the Sept. 30 end of the fiscal year.
Time for lawmakers to pass a continuing resolution is running short as the fiscal year ends Friday. The Senate rejected the House version of CR Friday, and will take up debate on its version Monday afternoon. In the meantime, cuts to GAO and the E-Government Fund are drawing ire from supporters.

Stan Collender, a federal budget expert and a partner at Qorvis Communications, joined the Federal Drive with Tom Temin and Amy Morris to discuss the twists and turns of the budget negotiations.
The Senate failed to pass a continuing resolution Friday over an issue that amounts to "tiddlywinks," said Steven Dennis, Senate reporter for CQ Roll Call.
The Senate's six-week funding measures includes $2.65 billion for FEMA at the start of the fiscal year, dropping a provision for $1 billion worth of disaster aid that was the root of legislative gridlock. The House must pass a CR before Friday, when funding for the government runs out.
