Government Shutdown to Force FCC to Cease Most of Its Operations

The Federal Communications Commission will wind down most of its operations if the partial federal government shutdown isn’t resolved. Should its lapsed funding not be restored, the commission says “all FCC activities will cease” as of mid-day January 3, 2019, “other than those immediately necessary for the protection of life or property, performing other excepted activities, or those funded through a source other than lapsed appropriations.”
