Shutdown Day 2: Bipartisan Group Eyes a Compromise Before Monday

Shutdown Day 2: Bipartisan Group Eyes a Compromise Before Monday | 21 Jan 2018 | Members of Congress pushed Sunday to end a two-day-old government shutdown, with a bipartisan group of senators meeting behind closed doors in search of a compromise deal even as both parties continued to publicly trade blame. While lawmakers remained mired in partisan disputes as they reconvened in the early afternoon, the gathering of senators from the two parties offered a reason for cautious optimism that a deal could be reached before the workweek began. Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader, said he would move ahead with a procedural vote on a temporary spending bill, which would occur by 1 a.m. Monday, and Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin offered an assurance that his chamber would pass the measure.
