Is this Government Gridlock On Track To Be The Longest Shutdown Since 1976?

Contributed by J. Cecil Bowman from noted references.
The partial government shutdown that started Saturday is now expected to stretch into the first weeks of January. That means it's already on track to be one of the longest ever. This is the 21st government shutdown since Congress adopted new budgeting procedures in 1976, according to the Congressional Research Service, and it's also the third this year alone. For perspective, there were only three shutdowns in the 25 years before 2018.
