Abstract

This essay considers statutory proposals to create an automatic continuing resolution mechanism to avoid government shutdowns from the perspectives of public management, political science, and law. It concludes that such a mechanism is ill-advised because of the policy implications of changes to incentive structures.

Keywords: automatic continuing resolution, continuing resolution, appropriation, administrative law, government shutdown
