Current Event #4

On September 14, 2020, in Assignments, by lwaddell

This current event will deal with Congress and the budget process. There is a threat of a possible shut down of the government on October 1. Find an article that deals with either the House or the Senate and how they are working on the budget or trying to avoid a shutdown. This current event will be due on Thursday, Sept 17 at the start of class.

On another note, you must complete the current event using the format that has been provided. Failure to do so will result in a loss of points. Many are doing whatever they want with the current event. I have included an example from a classmate who has done the current event correctly.
