  • The government shutdown is now in its 25th day, setting the record for the longest of the modern era.
  • This is the 21st time the federal government has had a funding lapse since the modern budgeting process began.
  • Most of those times, the shutdown has been short and not involved employees being sent home, but that has changed in recent years.

President Donald Trump and Democratic leaders have yet to come to an agreement to reopen the government, pushing the government into a historic 25th day.

No shutdown ever lasted past the 21st day, with the 1995-1996 as the previous standard bearer. But the current, drawn out shutdown fight has eclipsed the record and shows no signs of ending.
