Senate Short Term Spending Bill

December 19, 2018 by  

Senate Short Term Spending Bill, The Senate will introduce a short-term measure Wednesday to fund the government as an impasse over President Donald Trump’s border wall threatens a partial government shutdown.

The so-called continuing resolution would fund the government through Feb. 8, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced. The Senate will take up the measure later Wednesday, the Kentucky Republican said. Lawmakers need to pass spending bills by midnight Friday to avoid a partial shutdown.

The plan would push the ongoing debate over immigration and border security into next year, when Democrats will hold control of the House and Nancy Pelosi will likely be speaker.

“We need the government to remain open for the American people,” McConnell said on the Senate floor. He contended that Democrats have not taken border security seriously enough, saying they had an “allergy to sensible immigration policies.”

House Democrats likely would not object to the bill to fund the government through February, a senior Democratic aide told CNBC on Wednesday before McConnell’s announcement. Senate Democrats will back it, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday.
