SEC Government Shutdown Operations Plan Released

January 23, 2018

Ahead of last weekend’s government shutdown, the Securities and Exchange Commission published an Operations Plan Under a Lapse in Appropriations and Government Shutdown. The document outlines how the SEC will operate due to a lapse in appropriations that causes a complete shutdown.

If an actual shutdown occurs wherein the SEC must implement its operating plan, supplemental guidance from the Office Management and Budget, the Office of Personnel Management, and the General Services Administration would also apply.

Read the government shutdown operating plan on the SEC website.
