U.S. federal agencies suspend their work due to budgetary problems

US government agencies have to suspend their work on Friday due to the fact that the congress was not able to adopt the draft federal budget for the 2018 financial year.

The term of the previous interim budget agreement expired at midnight on Friday.

On Wednesday, Republicans and Democrats announced a two-year deal on the budget, which is designed to end the permanent sequestration and adoption of temporary budgets, while it is estimated that spending could grow by $ 300 billion over the next two years. However, at the last moment Republican Senator Rand Paul demanded to vote on his amendment providing for financing within the current limits.

This is the second time in a month when the US government is forced to stop their work. 

In January, federal agencies worked intermittently for three days because of a delay in the adoption of the next provisional bill, and then the budget was adopted until February 8.
