Senate moves forward on short-term deal to avert government shutdown

September 27, 2023

Senate Democrats and Republicans announced a short-term funding deal Tuesday night in a show of force against House Republicans, who have largely abandoned passing a stopgap measure ahead of a possible government shutdown in four days. The Senate deal, reached days before the government would shut down on Sunday, cleared its first procedural hurdle Tuesday night, passing 77-19. If adopted, it would fund the government for six weeks while including additional money for Ukraine and domestic disaster relief.
