McConnell and Schumer Agree to Set Two Procedural Votes for Thursday to Potentially End Gov’t Shutdown


The Senate has set two procedural votes to potentially reopen the government for last this week.

The New York Times reports that there are two amendments expected to get votes on the Senate floor on Thursday––”one backed by President Trump that includes $5.7 billion for his border wall and another that would simply extend funding for shuttered agencies through Feb. 8.”

It’s unclear at this point if either would even have enough votes to pass.
