CQ on Congress

Jan 18, 2019

Tens of thousands of government contractors are out of work and their employers are losing millions in revenue because of the partial government shutdown. Alan Chvotkin of the Professional Services Council,  a contractor trade association, says his group is lobbying Congress to pay contractors for their missed work, as it has already agreed to do for furloughed civil servants. And Roll Call Senior Senate Reporter Niels Lesniewski says that the impasse on Capitol Hill over government funding is showing no signs of resolution.
