Chances of October 2019 shutdown?

Looking for informed conjecture from other DUers — how likely do you think it is that we’ll have another Federal govt. shutdown this fall?

Supposedly there has been some effort to keep us from going over a “fiscal cliff,” and maybe the Republicans’ appetite for this kind of cruel melodrama has diminished. But there is an appropriations fight looming, and I don’t trust them at all to negotiate in good faith.

I confess, my reason for asking is partly selfish — we have an October family trip planned to the Southwestern U.S., which will be considerably less fun if national parks & monuments are closed to the public. Plans B and C include trips to state parks and more citified activities.

Found the sources below — anybody have better information to share?

2. Always refer to these shut downs, or threats of shutdown, as a Trump shut down

Always.

3. Plan on it.

The dysfunction isn't going anywhere, and all Trump knows is Brinksmanship.

A cool place that will be open is Goblin Valley State Park in Utah, and it's right next to some of the best Canyoneering in the San Rafael Swell. Showers!
