Just before midnight, the White House Office of Management and Budget issued orders to the executive branch departments and agencies to begin closing their doors.
"Agencies should now execute plans for an orderly shutdown due to the absence of appropriations. We urge Congress to act quickly to pass a Continuing Resolution to provide a short-term bridge that ensures sufficient time to pass a budget for the remainder of the fiscal year, and to restore the operation of critical public services and programs that will be impacted by a lapse in appropriations," the guidance directed.
When they shut down the government in '95 I was gonna bring in a load of pot from Mexico. Joke was on me. No roads.
