Will the U.S. government shutdown actually happen? It's looking more likely.

From 9/30 on ABC 7 Chicago

With only hours to spare, President Joe Biden on Thursday evening signed legislation that would avoid a partial federal shutdown and keep the government funded through Dec. 3. Congress had passed the bill earlier Thursday.

From 9/29 on CBS News:

From 9/28 on News On 6/KOTV:
