Section 3: List/Table of U.S. government funding gaps[edit]

Why is it a list/table of funding gaps instead of shutdowns?

Yes, there are notations about shutdowns in the table, but shouldn't it be structured to reflect shutdowns instead of funding gaps? --Ratha K (talk) 00:18, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

Funding gap != government shutdown[edit]

According to a few sources [1] [2], only five of the funding gaps prior to 1995 resulted in government shutdowns, in the sense of federal employees actually being furloughed. Since sources differ as to whether the term "government shutdown" refers to the other gaps, I'm going to revise the article to be more specific about which meaning is applied to the term.

The likelihood of another government shutdown[edit]

Just FYI, be ready to add a new section if a government shutdown happens beginning at 12:00 AM, January 20, 2018. It appears rather likely. Evieliam (talk) 19:34, 19 January 2018 (UTC) Evieliam

If a government shutdown does occur by the end of the day, then a new article may be warranted; it can be created at United States federal government shutdown of 2018, perhaps. Master of Time (talk) 21:00, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
If anyone wants to get an early start, an article about the continuing resolution itself, Extension of Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018, could be started now. The text is at [3]. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 23:47, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

Supposed shutdown under Carter[edit]

Please don't imply without sources that there were federal government shutdowns under Jimmy Carter. As this article makes clear, actual government shutdowns, as opposed to funding gaps, did not happen under Carter. LK (talk) 07:43, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Actually, the 1980 shutdown that only affected the FTC did happen under Carter. Some sources neglect to mention it because it was so small, but see [4] [5] [6] [7]. You are correct that all other funding gaps under Carter occured before the Civiletti opinion and did not lead to shutdowns. Antony–22 (talkcontribs) 20:59, 21 January 2018 (UTC)
