Senate To Vote Monday Afternoon On Reopening Government

By

With no deal made Sunday night, the Senate adjourned and will vote at noon Monday on a bill to reopen the government for at least three weeks. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wanted to hold a vote at 10 p.m. Sunday, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) objected, saying there still wasn’t a plan in place that works for Democrats and Republicans. The government shut down at midnight Friday after McConnell was unable to get the 60 votes necessary for a bill to keep the government open for a month. On Monday, only federal employees deemed essential will show up to work, and several services will be unavailable.
