I. Federal Government Faces Partial Shut-down on Friday

The State Funeral of President George H.W. Bush has caused Congress to delay roll-call votes that had been scheduled for this week. The midnight, Friday, December 7, deadline to fund roughly Twenty-five percent of the Federal government, in order to avert a partial shut-down of a variety of agencies and programs, will be avoided by voice votes in both Houses.
Congressional leadership plans to send a two-week extension to the President.
Programs needing funding include the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), kept alive, on life support, with actions by the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, late last week. The expiration date for that emergency extension will also be pushed forward two weeks.

IV. National Day of Mourning

Wednesday is a National Day of Mourning in remembrance of President George H. W. Bush.  As a result, Federal Offices and the United States Post Offices will be closed. 

Many bank operations will be closed.  In addition, some New Jersey county offices and municipal offices may be closed due to contractual requirements. Currently there is no general order closing New Jersey State offices – however, again, some contractual requirements might cause some State operations to close.
The Presidential order on the National Day of Mourning can be found at the White House website.
The Governor’s Executive Order lowering flags is found at the New Jersey website.
