The United States federal government shutdowns of 1995 and 1995–96 were the result of conflicts between Democratic President Bill Clinton and the Republican Congress over funding for education, the environment, and public health in the 1996 federal budget.

The current title, United States federal government shutdowns of 1995–96, correctly says that there was more than one shutdown, is consistent with the fact that one event lasted from December through January, and saves a few characters by not saying "1995 and 1996". It seems adequate except that it's still somewhat long.
