#ShutdownStories: The impact of the government shutdown
The partial US government shutdown has entered the new year as President Donald Trump's border wall standoff with Congress remains unresolved. The partial shutdown means about 25% of the US federal government has no funding. "Any shutdown of the federal government can disrupt or delay research projects, lead to uncertainty over new research, and reduce researcher access to agency data and infrastructure," Mr Holt said. Many local spots are offering discounts to government employees to help ease the strain of the shutdown. Some bars in the capital began offering federal workers discounted drinks as soon as the shutdown began on 22 December.
