UPDATE: Senate votes to END government shutdown; PASSES House, will go to Trump…

According to CNBC the Senate has the votes now to end Armageddon the government shutdown:

Senators have reached a bipartisan compromise deal that they believe will allow Congress to pass a short-term funding bill and end the government shutdown.

If it gets passed and signed, the funding legislation means that federal agencies will no longer be forced to shut their doors, and to furlough non-essential workers. U.S. government funding lapsed at the end of Friday.

The Senate had aimed to vote on a procedural motion to advance the spending plan at noon Monday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R., Ky., on Sunday night, after a day of bipartisan wrangling, moved to hold a vote at 10 p.m. ET, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D., N.Y., objected. McConnell then scheduled a cloture vote for Monday.

Once the measure clears the Senate, it would move to the House, where if it gets approved it would go to President Donald Trump’s desk.
