The swirl of lies, deception, and deals has begun. A potential government shutdown is once again on the horizon. However, a senate bill just passed a “test” vote, this bill could keep the government open until December 11th. This bill has yet to be truly rolled out, and has yet to pass the house.
A Senate bill to keep the government open past midnight Wednesday cleared a procedural hurdle on Monday. The bill would fund the federal government through Dec. 11. Without a funding extension, the federal government would partially shut down on Oct. 1. Monday’s 77-to-19 vote sets up a vote on final passage in the Senate. The House would also need to vote on the bill.
